Anatomy of an EEH home  





Engineered Trusses and/or approved wood trusses feature kiln-dried top and bottom chords for maximum Strength



EEH homes use only 13mm  plywood sheathing, the mark of a true quality



25-30 year asphalt shingles with heavy grit coloured surface will keep the roof in top condition for many years. Other surfaces optional.



SuperWindow Perfectly engineered PVC skylights are thermally sealed safety glass, and fill your home with natural light. Optional power opening.

Deluxe Ext. Trim


A wide range of feature trims including shutters, window grills, cupolas, and louvered vents give your home a distinctive appearance.


Quality 300mm Fiberglass batt insulation for the complete ceiling area, and 140mm for all living area exterior walls, provide the maximum in energy efficiency. A 6 mil polyethylene vapour barrier ensures that your home has a durable and effective moisture barrier.



Powerful Wall Construction 

The exterior wall studs are 6x2 Kiln dried Spruce, EU certified, on narrow 406mm Centers providing 315% more strength than  conventional framing. The exterior wall sheathing is  solid 13mm plywood,  with “Tyvek” exterior wrap. 
EEH’s exteriors feature the natural look of rough-sawn, select grade Cedar siding, pre finished Flood-coat cedar, or attractive vinyl siding, which can be enhanced and accented with stone, brick or stucco.

Custom Window Projections


EEH includes a special designed detail for custom window projections that add light and space to your kitchen and or dining rooms. 

Combining casement windows and skylights in a framed wall projection, these options are a wonderful way to let the sunshine stream in. Think of Skylights in the hallway or even a sunroom or glass breakfast nook. See back of this house.


This year EEH offers Wood based power  opening skylights with optional remote control and rain sensor to automatically close the window in case of inclement weather.
