Buying A Home With A Laneway House or Building

Laneway homes in Burnaby, BC will offer an innovative housing solution. Laneway homes contribute to optimizing land use within the city…

Renting Out a Laneway House, and Increasing Your Home Value

Laneway houses help homeowners in two ways! They can serve as additional living spaces for extended families, or generate rental income.
