Prefab Hive Modular House in Canada Incorporates Passive Home Concepts


Our friend, Rhonda Pike, over at Hive Modular was kind enough to share some pictures with us of a client’s custom-designed home in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada that is based on the X-Line 016 model. Not including the three-car garage, the three-bedroom, 2.5 bathroom prefabricated modular house provides its residents with 2273 square feet of living space.

Hive Modular used passive home concepts for both the lighting and the ventilation. The Low-E, argon-filled clerestory windows in the center hall help to bring daylight into the center of the home and create a “chimney effect” ventilation system during the summer. Additional window groupings  throughout the home allow for natural daylighting.


The furnace and HRV are ultra-high efficiency models and the outside of the home is protected by low-maintenance fibercement siding.

All Hive Modular homes are built using the latest modular fabrication technology and feature 2
