UK Greenest Year Ever

At Pringle Creek Community, we believe in building homes that promote healthier living. In the last year we've built many types of homes to the upmost green building standards. All with the goal of cultivating community and leaving a lighter footprint on the earth. You can build your healthy dream home or purchase a well thought out healthy home that we have built.

Perfect

What does it mean to have a perfect home anyway? Well, some might say that custom building is about as close as you can come to getting your perfect home. Other times,  you might be walking down the street, minding your own business, when you stumble upon the most charming cottage you've ever laid eyes on. Yes, searching for a home feels a little like trying to find that special someone you'd like to wake up to every morning.

Intergenerational Households

At Pringle Creek Community, we think resourcefulness is a good thing. We pay careful attention to how the Earth's precious resources are being used, and see if there are even more ways to leave a lighter footprint in the world. With the stigma of adult millennials moving in with parents decreasing, and the realization that this is a strategic move rather than a lazy one, more and more people are beginning to see that living in an intergenerational household has a lot of benefits. You get the chance to strengthen family ties, perhaps further a career, and save some ... Read more
