Blue Mountains Turn Green!

A unique partnership forged by true industry visionaries Quality Homes and Greenhome Developments, has resulted in the building of the first GreenSeal® Platinum Certified Home in Blue Mountains.


Greenhhome Developments chose Quality Homes because of their strong belief that factory-built homes are superior – giving them total control over the building environment. Quality Homes’ pristine indoor factory and their incredible system of checks and balances convinced Greenhome that this was the company to partner with. Quality Homes delivers an airtight, gap-free building envelope that can easily be upgraded to GreenSeal® Canada Platinum specifications. Plus a Quality home can be delivered at a speed that is unheard of with traditional building.


The home, located at 176 Timmons Street is a custom design 2-storey infused with sustainability, energy efficiency, environmental friendliness and the durability required for Green Seal® certification.

This contemporary and elegant home offers 3 bedrooms, plus den, 2 ½ bathrooms and a sleek open-concept kitchen, dining and living area with sliding glass doors opening to a large and private sun deck. The kitchen is outfitted with stainless steel Energy Star appliances, natural quartz stone countertops and a large central island. Upstairs, the master retreat overlooks lush mature forest. Stunning white oak floors throughout give this home a warm, sophisticated ambiance.
