What do you guys think? I have seen this in Australia before around 15 years back. Pretty interesting...I can definately see a lot of houses in east vancouver applying for one of these. Those that rent small apt/condo's in the suburbs and work in the city will probably consider this to save the commute time. From what i gathered the utilities is shared with the main house.
This is an awesome idea. If I had a house I'd totally invest in one of these. I would rent one if the price was right as well.
I've always thought that North Americans are overly spoiled in thinking a a 3-car garage is a must-have. And even though I like working on my car in our garage, a stand alone house would be a much better use of valuable (and expensive) Vancouver real estate.

Not really that much different then coach houses above the garage which are all over the place where I live. That place does look a bit larger though but with the coach house you still get a 2 car garage.
The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place... and I donīt care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently, if you let it. You, me or nobody, is gonna hit as hard as life. But ain't about how hard you hit... It's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward... how much you can take, and keep moving forward. Thatīs how winning is done. Now, if you know what you worth, go out and get what you worth. - Rocky Balboa
Same as in London -- most large homes in pricey areas have backlanes (called mews), and smaller homes which used to house servants/help. Today they are largely converted to mews homes (and still ridiculously expensive!).
Or people can use it as a city crash pad (pied a terre).

I know a number of people who have converted their garages as suites, its probably a hell of a lot cheaper too. I'm sure it would cos a fraction of the 190k to get the essentials in such as a kitchen, bathroom, etc...
