We are offering Tiny Homes, which technically is an RV with CSA Z240RV Certification. Soon, Park Model Trailers (CSA Z241) and Modular Homes (CSA Z240MH / CSA A277) will be available for order.
High-performance homes are built to standards above the basic BC Building Code. The BC Energy Step Code is a provincial regulation that consists of a series of steps above the basic code, representing increasing levels of energy efficiency performance in homes.
Lower Monthly Expenses: Lower energy consumption reduces your operating costs and protects you from future increases in energy prices. Lower water and resource usage also save money!
Better Investment: An energy-efficient home that has been better built will also last longer, increasing your resale value.
Environmental Impact: fewer resources are required to operate a small HP home, energy-efficient homes use less energy, which means fewer greenhouse gases and negative impacts on the environment and climate change.
Healthier Living: The use of heat or energy recovery ventilators is a typical feature of high-performance homes to manage fresh air in your home. A very important feature for anyone dealing with allergies and respiratory issues. We use the LUNOS e2™ HRV system. It is a demand-flow, through-wall variable ventilation system, coupled with a ceramic regenerative heat exchanger. Operating and wired in pairs, these devices provide continuous ventilation without the need for ductwork and are installed directly through an exterior wall.
Comfort: A building envelope that is more airtight and better insulated helps you stay warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer while keeping your household's overall costs down!
Yes! Our Tiny Home will be financeable just as a regular RV.
Don't hesitate to get in touch with us and we will listen to the customization needed. We will then evaluate if the customization is feasible through our production schedule.
The building envelope is the same as conventional houses: 2x4 studs wall with premium spray foam insulation. RVs generally has a thin metal framing covered with fiberglass sheets.
Each city/town/municipality has their own unique bylaws. You can look up your local bylaws or ask at your local city hall. Some cities allow laneway housing or multiple dwellings on single titles. Rural properties sometimes rent space and campgrounds are also an option.

The services you need will vary based on the site location as well as your model specifications. Our tiny homes require a power supply, water, and sewer/septic. For water, a garden hose will do. Sewer/Septic will depend on the site, whether it’s hooked up to municipal sewer or septic. You will also need a graded and level spot to park the home—preferably a concrete pad, but packed gravel will work just as well.
Absolutely! Contact us to book a tour! Unfortunately due to safety concerns, drop-ins are not allowed.

Yes, we offer a one year full manufacturers warranty on all of our tiny homes. Appliances and components are covered by individual manufacturer warranties.
The LUNOS e2™ HRV is a demand-flow, through wall variable ventilation system, coupled with a ceramic regenerative heat exchanger. A new solution for changing the air in your home while maintaining excellent energy efficiency in heating.
Lunos Heat Recovery Ventilation (HRV) Systems provide fresh, clean air to your home while maintaining temperature balance- without temperature loss! (up to 90% efficiency†) Lunos HRVs are an essential component of any air-sealed high-performance home, bringing fresh air while removing unwanted pollutants and humidity. The system is capable of exchanging heat and humidity. Thus, in the manner of an ERV (Energy Recovery Ventilator), it helps to maintain the relative humidity of the air inside the house.
