What is a Laneway house?

Essentially, a Laneway house (sometimes called an infill house) is a small home at the rear of a close to a lane with a dwelling unit that varies in size from 550sq ft to 940 sq ft. The benefits of laneways are endless but for starters, they increase the diversity of rentals units in low-density homes. Visit the How to guide by the City of Vancouver.

At VGC, We can help you capitalize on the available space within urban centers and develop quality properties that offer value to the community. We manage the normal cost challenges of building infill homes through smart project management. Our experience with infill home projects helps us understand exactly how to work within the unique limitations of this type of development. Our team has pioneered inventive solutions for constructing within confined spaces without disturbing surrounding structures. Your first step is to check if your lot is eligible here!

How much will my Laneway house cost?

Though infill homes are often built to offer residents affordable housing solutions, the cost of building can actually be quite high. Urban lots and infill development permits grow more and more expensive, leaving less to be spent on the homes themselves. According to our previous projects and PHW homes, the average Vancouver Laneway home is about $300,000. Our crew creates cost-effective, adaptive construction techniques to give you the best bang for your buck. Our affordable solutions makes the creation of these highly in-demand homes easier on your budget.

What is all the Buzz about?

In the past decade, laneway homes have become a popular new type of development within the Vancouver region. This is due to them being a great solution for areas with high population densities. As experienced contractors of laneway homes, we know just how to create top-of-the-line residences that have all of the luxuries and amenities of traditional housing. Whether it’s the construction of a single laneway property or the development of many, our team can take it on.
