If you are unfamiliar with a laneway suite, or have heard about them and considering adding one to your property, you should know that when done correctly they can make an immediate positive impact on your home.
A laneway suite is a small dwelling at the rear of a residential lot that is detached from the primary home. All of its services (water, sewer, electricity, gas, garbage, mail, etc.) come from the front street, not the laneway. You can use it as a home office, an in laws suite or even as a rental property and are an excellent way of adding a second income and value to your home.
Because a laneway suite is a blank canvas, you have the ability to create a design that is all your own and suits your exact needs. The design is only limited by your imagination, and because a laneway suite is very affordable, they are a great way to stretch a home renovation budget.
