Self-build resources for DIY eco homes in Canada?
I'm looking to (mostly) DIY build a small high efficiency home as an ADU in southern Ontario, and am looking for resources to help me plan and execute. Do you have any resources for planning, costing spreadsheets, etc?
First I would suggest you join the Ecohome Network as a member, it’s free, and it has all the information you need in our guide pages. Our green home building guide starts at the beginning with how to choose a building lot, and takes you all the way through sustainable home building and right to healthy home finishing. Also check out the green building product directory to find non toxic and natural building materials.
We continually add features, we also have deals and discounts for members which you will get in an email notification when new features and promotions come online. and if you get stuck at some point and need advice from a pro, check out questions in the green building discussion forum and if you don’t find all the answers you need then you can ask a question of your own. Good luck!
