Testimonials

“You get a house with a healthy environment — there’s no condensation, no mould and no heating costs. It made sense to build this way. I like that you can control the humidity levels and the little things you notice, like the bedding is always dry. Hofmans Builders created a beautiful, high standard home, Steve and Susie and their team were great to work with and we would not hesitate in recommending them to future e-Haus clients."
Ian & Annie

"It is often said that building a house has to be one of the most stressful experiences you can have. We certainly didn't find that the case at all. In fact it couldn't have been further from the truth. Our inital meeting with the eHaus team was like finally finding someone that was speaking the same language. The whole process from initial concept through to construction ran extremely smoothly. Our home was the first passivhaus for the Hawkes Bay team and we think it is fair to say there was a pretty steep learning curve. It was great to work with builders that were excited about embracing something new, and reassuring that they were paying as much attention to the bits you couldn't see as to the finishing. We have lived through one winter in our eHaus and couldn't be happier. It has performed brilliantly." 
Richard & Maryanne 
"We love our new house! After spending some time you start to notice the smaller details. These details indicate to me a great sense of pride, creativity and a high standard of workmanship that you just don’t see every day." 
Graeme & Joanna
"Our lifestyle has changed for the better because of our home. A completely comfortable living environment you have to 'feel', and appreciate what it's like to live in our passive eHaus. People come to our home and soon understand what that feeling is like. Our home is looking after us." 
Ali & Bronie
"We really like the philisophy of eHaus and were grateful that the technology to build to the Passive House standard is now accessible in NZ.  The result is a beautiful and comfortable family home"
Andrew & Margaret
"I am pleased that eHaus introduced me to the concept of Passive House.  I knew I wanted an energy efficient eco-home without properly understanding what the terms meant.  The outcome is a home built to the high Eurpoean energy efficient standard which is very comfortable"
Robin
"We are very happy in our Passive House.... as the temperature always stays the same.  It is like living in a cocoon. Would we build another eHaus?  A very definite and emphatic YES"
