Heyde-Haus was created more than three years ago by Uwe Heyde. Uwe is a certified carpenter and timber framer and he is passionate about all things related to Passive Housing. He knows he has a huge task in hand: convince Canadians that you can live in a house without the most used heating sources in the country – no gas, no energy, no geothermal.

This is possible, even when the temperature outside is many degrees below zero, because Heyde-Haus applies a super-insulated building envelope, including the roof, creating a healthy and high-efficiency home, capable of capturing the sunlight as its unique heat source.

It is a simple, sensible and smart solution.
