My husband and I wanted to build a small retirement home in Nova Scotia. We researched extensively and decided a passive home was the best fit for us. We contacted Passive Design Solutions and never looked back. Natalie and her team were amazing throughout the entire planning and building process. Extremely knowledgeable and professional. What impressed us the most was how well they listened to what type of house we wanted. They presented us with a custom design that exceeded our expectations. We are now happily living in our new very energy efficient home. The added bonus is that the house construction stayed within our budget without compromising the vision thanks to the team at PDS."~ Sandra MacDougall
