Permits, plans, and city services hook ups can run up close to 60% of that.

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

Any feedback in regards to these two companies?
I've been talking with Thomas from Lanecraft about putting a laneway in my in-law's lot. Nice guy, not pushy. His pricing starts at $190K and he can do offsite builds which are faster and less messy. His builds look pretty nice and seem to do a good job maxing out the available floor space.

Also talked with Jack from Tyko Development - said a laneway runs about $180K for a 33" lot one but only $110K if you're already building a house. All the permits and work for power and sewer lines drive up the cost a lot - my in-laws are lucky that the sewer lines run in the back of the lot so it's a lot less digging.

The in-laws seem fairly keen now so this might happen over the next few months, will share what we learn.

its cheap because we are currently rebuilding our home. so it is supposed to be cheaper. if you want to build a laneway without rebuilding the home, the price goes up significantly.

Housing was at one time something that made communities


Housing is now simply an investment designed to squeeze every last dollar from your fellow man

The Dumfries Solar Lane House was ranging from $450,000 to $500,000.

Cost was high because of materials that were used to build it.

Also their one car garage got converted into a one kid bedroom and an office den.

Other wise on the lower end of costs, it starts at $300,000 for 1000sq if using lower end materials and appliances.

If you live in a Vancouver special with the garage attached to the house, are you eligible to build a lane way house?

our old house was a vancouver special and had a garage attached. we were eligible to build a laneway. not sure what the requirements are, but all you gotta do is call city hall and ask if your lot is available to build a laneway on.

needless to say, the laneway would render your attached garage useless unless you convert it to something. and that would probably take a bit of work.

The requirements are easily found with a quick Google search that leads you to the CoV website. IIRC, depends on zoning but as far as I could tell, pretty much any SFD home is eligible
