Vancouver Laneway House

BIG Living on a Teenie Footprint

Check out this sweet little Vancouver Laneway House with a Teenie Tiny footprint.

This beautiful 1 Bedroom 1 Bath East Van Laneway House features just over 500 sq/ft of living space in a Teenie TINY 60′ Backyard.

The property owner was looking to augment the rental income on their land and wanted to convert their small lacklustre backyard into an income property.
This little Laneway house rents for over $1950 a month generating great cash flow for the owner.

The City of Vancouver, BC Canada allows most homeowners living in Single-Family Zoned RS read to add a small Laneway or Coach House to their backyards. This is a great way for owners to earn some passive income while increasing the pool of so desperately needed rental houses.

A laneway house cannot be sold as a separate house. 

From the first meeting with the client to the completion of the building the whole process took just over a year. A significant portion of that time was dedicated the building and development permits being issued by the City of Vancouver.
