What are laneway homes?

A laneway home or laneway suite is a self-contained unit on an existing residential lot. They are usually converted from garages or erected in backyards. Laneway homes differ from garden suites, because laneway homes must share a property line with a public lane.

Working together, we’re building a collection of custom laneway suites in Toronto. For homeowners with goals of constructing their dream home and lifestyle, our partnership offers quality craftsmanship, value, and precise project management in one service.

More than a solution for maximum lifestyle and property enjoyment, laneway homes contribute significantly to the availability of affordable rental housing while revitalizing underutilized urban spaces.
