Laneway Homes

A laneway home, also known as a carriage home or garden home, is a small house situated at the end of a residential lot, commonly used by family members, or as a rental opportunity, making for a great investment as a new stream of income while also exponentially increasing the property’s market value.

The two terms are often synonymous, both describing a small, auxiliary home that’s situated on a residential lot.

There are many reasons to build a laneway home. For large families looking to stay close together, a laneway house is a great way to keep multi-generational families on the same property. Laneway houses are also great investments as an additional stream of income, for example, renting it out as an AirBnB.
