Fine European Craftsmanship
Our manufacturing partners are leaders in hand crafted custom innovative design and thermal performance.
They are passionate about their work and about protecting the local forests that support their livelihoods and communities.
They use only the highest quality materials including:
Sustainably harvested European pine (Sylvestris Pinus), a dense species with higher strength and thermal properties as compared to other pines.
European glass with exceptional clarity and performance low-e coatings.
German steel hardware.
Heavy gauge aluminum cladding, sills, and screens.
We offer superior value in thermal performance, load strength, water/air tightness, durability, acoustic barrier and glass clarity.
Select from a range of shapes, sizes, colours, stains, handles and pull bars.
We choose these products with great care to ensure the highest quality and best value for our clients.
Wood contributes to healthy indoor air quality. It offers superior durability, structural rigidity and the widest range of shapes and sizes. It is easy to care for and easy to repair.
Wood harvested from sustainably managed forests protects ecosystems, wildlife and watersheds. It is the leading method of carbon capture critical for climate resiliency.

Why high performance?
High performance glass makes a well-insulated wall assembly perform better.
Low performance glass drags down overall performance, no matter what you do with the walls.
Good glass improves performance exponentially

What is a Passive House?
In 1977, the first passive build, Canada's Saskatchewan Conservation House, ignited a global movement. Later perfected by the Passive House Institute, this revolutionary design has proven successful all over the world, from the far north to the tropics.
Just like a thermos keeps liquids hot or cold, a Passive House stays cool in the summer and warm in the winter with little or no need for energy powered heating or cooling.
A Passive House requires:
3.High Performance Windows / Doors
5.Heat / Energy Recovery Ventilation
