Land Haus Retreat has been developed with sustainability and use of local materials in mind. Dwellings are orientated for passive solar gain, have large, high quality windows and we are presently working on harvesting water from the rooftops.

Homespun Haus

In tune with the sustainability of Land Haus, Homespun Haus was an afterthought as a result of the fortunate acquisition of the makings of a tiny house! Left over materials from Land Haus and antique treasures were repurposed to make a comfortable living area. Decking was salvaged from old wall tent projects and voilá, this cute, eclectic cabin was created. You will find lots of cool features like the willow deck furniture, the old Avon glassware and the trampoline springs given a new life!

Land Haus

The first of it's kind in the Yukon, Land Haus was engineered with CLT - compressed laminate timber, from Penticton, British Columbia which provides a cozy heat sink indoors. Along with this, the geothermal heating/cooling and a solar array have also helped create a net zero home.

Interior finishes and materials were chosen for longevity, sustainability and health. The wooden walnut and white ash countertops were purchased rough-cut here in the Yukon, originate from Ontario and are finished with food safe, beeswax based oil. Flooring is marmoleum, many people ask! It is a sustainable flooring made from natural raw materials.

Local artists have been supported over the years and you will find many beautiful pieces throughout Land Haus. If you would like to see more work from local artists and craftspeople, search in the buy local section in the LHR Guidebook for places to visit.


Keeping it local is a big priority in the Yukon, especially because we are so isolated from the rest of the world. Land Haus Retreat has a small garden and greenhouses, we do a lot of foraging and our best to make things home grown. Here is a partial list of some of the producers and produce grown in the Yukon. Look for these and many others in local stores and at the weekly Fireweed Community Market.
