Paul Kealey EKOBUILT
Paul Kealey's passion for sustainable home building has guided a nearly two-decade long career that started after receiving a B.Sc. from St. FX, being a high school teacher, and founding 2 sustainable home companies. Driven to live in a healthy home led Paul initially to log home construction followed by furthering education at the sustainable building and passivehouse institutes.
From the start, Paul was building on his growing knowledge of healthy / sustainable home building techniques - the vision led him to create 2 sustainable home companies, both driven by the mission to make sustainable homes affordable and accessible to everyone. Paul is the co-founder of EkoBuilt, a sustainable homes company focused on passive house and net zero buildings. He is also the co-founder of KT Log Homes, that builds homes using natural and authentic log and timber-frame materials.
Lifelong learning is one of Paul's passions, leading him to continually add to his tremendous body of experienced-based knowledge on the building science of passive home and sustainable buildings. Paul's short, educational videos have become a hallmark for EkoBuilt in recent years, as he shares the principles and impact of passive house, and its real health, financial and environmental benefits.
