Not your Traditional Mortgage Helper

The addition of a coach house can instantly add value to your property. Add style and convenience to your existing backyard, whether it is through the removal of an old garage/shed or updating a tired overgrown yard, a coach house is a great way to dramatically transform your property.

A coach house is a great way to help pay down your mortgage.
Our coach houses can demand a maximum rental rate which could ease the burden

of your mortgage payments for years to come.

A secondary residence for family members or visiting guests
A potential rental suite

On a regular sized lot, laneway homes can be up to 500 square feet; on a bigger lot the maximum is 750 square feet.
Homeowners need to provide at least one parking spot for the main and laneway home.
A laneway house is a perfect addition with new construction


In a city desperately in need for affordable housing, a coach house is a desirable option for people seeking the convenience and proximity your area provides to schools and the downtown core. Our quality craftsmanship is sure to attract working professionals and students interested in having more privacy and convenience than an apartment might offer.
