What are Lane Homes?

Lane Homes, also referred to as 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 from unused land. Lane Homes or laneway homes are a perfect solution for families who need more space for their children, grandparents, or other relatives. They can also provide a secondary income through rental revenue, and offer an affordable solution to Vancouver’s growing population and housing market.

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.
