The Pretty River Passive House – Challenges and Solutions
David Hill, Builder & Homeowner

When designing and building a Passive house for the first time there are several challenges that you may be faced with. This presentation brings the audience through the life of the successful Pretty River project, with detailed photos of every stage of the build, along with highlighting the challenges faced when it comes to achieving the rigorous Passive House standard. Having been heavily involved in both the design and construction of the building, homeowner David Hill is the perfect candidate to discuss the dos and don’ts when taking on a project such as this.

Re(de)fining affordability: a PEI Passive House case study
Lorrie Rand, Habit Studio Inc., Passive Buildings Canada

House 7 is a modest, 2 storey, single family home, constructed in rural PEI in 2018 by Trout River Homes. As Trout River Homes' seventh Passive House, the details and construction methods were informed by their experiences on preceding projects. House 7 meets PHI targets but is not a certified project. After construction a SEEFAR case study was done by SRP Canada, analyzing the total cost of home ownership of the house, compared with the same design built to code minimum. Technical details, economic data and projections will be shared by the designer and energy modeler.

Passive House on Reserve
Crystal Sedore, Yale First Nation

Yale First Nation completed 2 certified Passive buildings in 2017 in partnership with Metric Modular. There was a severe housing crisis that needed to be addressed in a hurry. Our tenants are all lower income and our existing homes on reserve were costing up to $800/month to heat. We had to do something fast!
