Simple Life Homes
Simple Life Homes is a company that is consistently exploring new technologies, new models, and new iterations to remain at the cutting edge of high-performance building. Founded in 2012, Simple Life started as a general contracting company specializing in sustainable housing. Seeing the opportunity to better deliver on their values and serve their clients, Jeremy Clarke, the founder of Simple life, steered the company toward manufacturing panels in 2017. The panels are constructed with exclusively low-embodied carbon materials—wood, dense-packed cellulose, and wood-fiber insulation—in keeping with the firm’s emphasis
The firm’s client base was initially a small niche of individuals who wanted an environmentally beneficial home and didn’t necessarily have the budget for custom work—and were building within spitting distance of Simple Life’s home base of Cobourg, which sits an hour east of Toronto on the northern shores of Lake Ontario. However, the company has grown as word has spread about the quality of its offerings. In the last couple of years Simple Life has worked on projects in Quebec, Manitoba, Nova Scotia, as well as Ontario, and is beginning to ship its products to the United States. Simple Life is also expanding into the multifamily market, though most of its homes continue to be either single-family dwellings or duplexes.
