Introducing KITHOUSE

Designing and constructing high performance, Passive House and Net Zero Energy homes in cold climates is challenging and has been elusive at an affordable price.  KITHOUSE puts high-performance housing within reach of the mainstream market. 


The KITHOUSE Premiere is a compact two bedroom home with all of the amenities expected but with one notable thing missing - energy bills.  Exceptional attention to energy efficiency in the design of this home has allowed for a modest sized, roof-mounted solar energy array to generate as much energy as this home will consume throughout the year.  At the core of the design is a super-insulated foam-free building envelope, that provides year-round comfort and exceptional energy efficiency even in the harshest of climates with a small environmental footprint.


KITHOUSE is shipped as a ready to assemble kit with all components pre-cut, and pre-marked for fast, easy, and accurate site construction.  There are three construction options: Built by the owner, built cooperatively by the owner and KITHOUSE staff or built entirely by KITHOUSE staff.  These options allow for the purchaser to choose the option that fits their needs and budget.


"We eagerly await the reaction to our KITHOUSE Premiere.  Achieving such low energy housing without a cost premium has been a tireless pursuit.  We feel we really have achieved something special that will hopefully take us one step closer to more sustainably inhabiting our earth... particularly the cold parts!"

Eric Bjornson, President of Sundial Building Performance and lead designer of the KITHOUSE Premiere

For example, for flooring, you may choose between three options, one of which would be opting out of the option for flooring included in our price.
  • Can a Kithouse be shipped?
    A Kithouse can be shipped anywhere in the world. If this is something you’re considering, please contact us at and we’ll be happy to figure out a pricing estimate for you.

    At this time we are focused on our current model, the Kithouse Premiere. There may be other models in the future, but we can’t give a timeline at this time.
  • I am a business looking for housing solutions, is this something Kithouse can help with?"
    Providing housing solutions to businesses, government agencies and more is one of Kithouse’s main focuses and priorities. The Kithouse is designed to be built in large volumes in remote places while being able to stand up to the harsh climates we’re used to in Canada and other countries with colder weather. If you think Kithouse would be a good option for staff housing, camp housing, environmentally friendly short-term housing options, you’re in the right place. If you have a need for multiple units (such as for social/staff housing, or First Nations housing), we would be interested in discussing customized solutions for your community needs. If this is something that interests you or your business, please contact to explore options.
  • What is included in the base price of a Kithouse?
    Kithouse is sold as a ready-to-assemble kit. This includes building components like electrical and plumbing, insulation, roofing, windows, and doors. We also include exterior finishes like kitchen and bathroom cabinets and an exterior siding of your choice.
  • How long does it take to get my Kithouse from when I place the order?
    You can expect a delivery date on a ready-to-move (RTM) model about six months from purchase.

  • Does Kithouse ship anywhere in the world?
    We are able to ship anywhere in the world, you’ll just have to contact us at and we can start the process.
  • What do I need to have done before my Kithouse is built?
    In order for your Kithouse to be built on your site or to be moved to your site as a ready-to-move (RTM) structure, you’ll need to have the following prepared: The land it will rest/stand on – this means trees may need to be removed and grading may have to occur. Electrical service – you’ll have to make sure there is electricity if you’re not going to the off-grid route. Water source – how will your house get water? You’ll have to consider a well or look at availability from the local municipal system. Building permit – you’ll have to ensure you’re allowed to build on your site. We’re able to provide you with permit drawings. Foundation – you’ll have already thought through which foundation option you’re using and have it in place. It can be a concrete, helical pile, surface bearing cribbing or multipoint foundation. We can help you through this process and provide advice and consultation during this phase.
  • Do you offer off-grid options?
    Yes, Kithouse is designed to function fully with off-grid, net-zero capabilities.
