Imagine a world with no energy bills, thanks to an energy-efficient high-performance home. Bone Structure is a Montreal-based home builder that uses technology from the aerospace industry to build awesome custom net-zero homes. The "bones" of the home are forged steel, which allow for large open spans without the need of load-bearing walls, which is music to the ears of designers and architects. Building a net-zero home requires the structure to produce all of the energy it needs.

Traditional materials like wood and concrete are not recyclable like steel, and the unique assembly methods of the Bone Structure system allow a home to be built on nearly any site with very minimal waste. In an ever-changing changing world, a Bone Structure home is also adaptable to future needs and can be reconfigured if desired.
