SaltSpring-02

A passive-inspired concrete home built entirely off-grid using solar power alone. Designed using passive and active solar energy, rainwater collection, and a permaculture landscape, this home is entirely self-sufficient.

“You live in a healthy, resilient and durable home, and for a wet climate like B.C.’s, it’s the ultimate way to go. When people ask me how long these homes last, I tell them to just look at the masonry of pubs and castles built in the U.K. — 500 years ago. These buildings are here to stay.” - Damon Gray
