Owning a custom home is a desire dream for a lot of Vancouver families. However, a lot of factors pose challenges to that dream, such as lack of space, cost of land, etc. Laneway houses are the perfect solution to prospective home owners who are facing such challenges. The laneway house cost in Vancouver is affordable provided you know just the right custom home construction company to contact. At our offices of Blue Streak Homes, we are sworn to deliver beautifully constructed and designed laneway homes to customers at reasonable prices.
There are a few things that the would-be home owners need to take into consideration, to prepare for a laneway home construction. Such as follows:
- The purpose behind the house-
Laneway houses are the solution to a lot of housing problems. Home-owners can have them built as an extension of the actual property. These homes can be used for housing aged residents, children, or teenagers or given on rent. Young families can opt for owning a laneway house if they have budgetary constraints. Bearing in mind what purpose the laneway house serves, who might be staying in it, etc., makes it easier for the home builder to get the architectural planning right.
- Know the building and zoning laws-
It is essential for the future laneway house-owner to be aware of all the zoning and building laws. Construction must comply with specific zoning laws in Vancouver, which employ particular building codes. These laws state dimensional factors, spacing factors, and other such eligibility criteria that define the build of your laneway home. Being aware of the pros and cons of these laws concerning your home design can be beneficial.
- Applying in advance-
The laneway home-build process is usually delayed to some extent by the application approvals. The application consumes some time before the concerned real estate and municipal authorities process it, and there is no right way to predict how long the approval process might be. Usually, the time taken varies from one design plan to the other. Customer-centric custom home and laneway house developers such as us, at Blue Streak Homes, typically handle these responsibilities on behalf of the customers.
Responsible home builders in Vancouver usually inform and guide the customer through the construction process. Setting the customer’s expectations is a crucial part of the custom home-build service industry. Policies such as these have helped us build a satisfied clientele over the years.
