Simplifying how you a build a home.
Let's face it. Building a home is complicated. It requires specialized skills, tools and equipment. Completing a building project often takes more time than anticipated and so it costs more. When you add factors like building with sustainability in mind, in climates with hot or cold waves that last for weeks - if not months, or in northern and other difficult to access locations, construction becomes even more complex, lengthy and expensive.
We get it. We've lived and built homes for the last 30 years in both Quebec and Yukon, Canada.

EXTERIOR INSULATION SYSTEM
PolarMax360 is a unique insulation system made with EPS (Expanded PolyStyrene).
It is solid, air tight, fast and easy to install and to finish.
* Effective R-Values of Exterior Insulation "Panel Alone" (Plus Wall Value)
- Polar Cub 5" / R20 -
- Polar Bear 7" / R30 -
- Polar Extreme 9" / R40 -
The walls becomes air tight, water tight and totally thermal bridge free.
Our patent pending profile and tie down furring allows the insulation panels to firmly and securely lock into place.
* Effective R-value, takes into account the cumulative value of thermal resistance for all materials within the assembly. Wood only offer a resistance of R-1 per inch, bat insulation is R-3.5 per inch and medium density is EPS R4.16. Polar MAX360 adds that much true thermal bridge free insulation value to your existing building allowing your structure to become a thermal mass that stores energy instead of wasting it.
Each kit building structure is similar to a flat pack furniture.
It is loaded in an enclosed cargo van or cargo containers and shipped to your building site with all the tools and materials needed to proceed to final assembly.
