Laneway Housing

It's time to UNLOCK the EQUITY in your Backyard.

Build it and they will come!Elm Cropped

When it comes to the Metro Vancouver housing marking there is no statement truer than that.

A number of Metro Vancouver cities and municipalities now allow you to build a small fully detached dwelling unit in your backyard. 

Commonly known as a Laneway Hosue, Coach House or Garden Suite these self-contained tiny houses can be used for additional family housing or turned into a rental suite.

With ever increasing property tax burden and increased costs of living Laneway Housing now provides you with a way to Unlock the Equity in your backyard and help ease the housing crisis our region is facing. We've regularly seen Laneway Houses rent for over $2500 a month in Vancouver.

That's where we come in. Westcoast Outbuildings is an experienced builder with over 125 building on the ground through British Columbia.
