i build homes for a living and realistically a laneway home can be built for less then 100k.

its not the frame and structure that drive the cost up its what you want inside.

cabinets, doors, windows, trim, flooring.... quality materials = $$$$$$$$$

the price lanefab quoted has a lot to do with their architecture and the quality materials they used, theres also a lot of overkill materials used in that home

Home depot in Nanaimo is displaying a prefab house that I think is around 500 sq feet. Cost $60000.

Here it is:

Was talking to a friend of mine and she saw the news story about laneway houses on the news, and now she's looking into building a laneway house on her property just for her 3 dogs more money than sense

Exactly. Obviously you can build some sort of basic shelter for 85k, the house in the video? Not a chance you will get nice exterior wood, LED lights, etc for that price.

i live like 5 mins away and from what i see when i walk by its pretty well built but its just way too cramped. Thought it looked more like a fancy garage because its so damn close to the alley. the existing house is old and it just looks weird with the laneway being taller than the existing. For 200k you can build a new vancouver special haha

They had one of these houses on display at the Yaletown olympic live venue. It was really, really nice. I'd rather live in one of those than an apartment.

Didn't mean to bump up a really old thread, but this was one of the threads that popped up in regards to laneway housing.

Has anyone recently propped up a laneway home on their Vancouver property?

Did a quick google search, LaneFab.com and smallworks.ca came up as the top search.

Any feedback in regards to these two companies?

my builder was telling me $180k if I wanted to build one(about 500sq ft) along with our new home

Also I'd need to pay my architect, structural engineer, and energy consultant some more money on top of what I'm paying them already, I entertained the idea to make it a man cave but my wife nixed that idea

There is already one in our block, but its not much a house, looks like a party spot above the garage for the kids to chill out, it does have a kitchenette and bathroom though.

We have a large lot, I was looking into this a while back. We are able to fit a two car garage and a nicely sized laneway house in our back yard.

Currently rebuilding a house with a laneway house on the property. Builder said it would cost roughly 100k more to build one. 2 floors, roughly 480 sq ft if i recall.

To be honest, if you look up specialty companies that specializes in laneways, you should be prepared to pay top dollars for it. Shop around for builders that you trust or have a referral to. And ask for a quote.

100k there abouts if you are already building a new house on a std lot in east vancouver 33x122

If you are not building a new house, i am guessing minimum 150+k maybe 200k+ for the laneway

100k is NOTHING for a laneway. Honestly that is one cheapass laneway.

What is that statement based on? $100,000 for 500 sqft puts the total for the build at $200 sqft, and that's a totally reasonable number that's appropriately a bit below the average for a custom home in Vancouver.
