For the Media
Now House involves homeowners in reducing energy consumption and green house gas emissions through home retrofits. This timely topic has an impact on all of our lives. Our unique approach to the issue blends the lives of those who currently dwell in wartime bungalows scattered across Canada and technological advances in environmental sustainability of the homes. As the Now House project becomes the model for retrofitting WWII era communities, both privately owned and publicly owned, every neighborhood will offer narrative and each house a story waiting to be told.
Now House has been featured on the front page of the Real Estate section of the Globe and Mail, the Toronto Star, National Post, CTV and more. Lorraine Gauthier, President, The Now House Project Inc. has been a guest at several conferences on sustainability and is available for speaking engagements.
With the evolution of our business to include a model for the net zero energy retrofit of 2-storey brick homes and other ubiquitous housing forms, the interest in Now House will grow.
