What are Lane Homes?

Lane homes, sometimes called laneway houses or coach houses, are small homes located at the rear of a property. They can be built in place of a current structure, like a garage, or on unused land. Lane homes are a perfect solution for families who need extra space for grandparents, older children or guests. They can also provide a secondary income source through rental revenue and contribute to making Vancouver’s housing market more affordable.

What people are saying.

Affordability was very important to me when going through with this Coach House development. With My Lane Home’s financing structure, their flexible deposit terms, and their relationship with Vancity, I found that financing this project was easy and comfortable.
