Legal Secondary Suites
Legal secondary suites are becoming a popular source of additional income for many homeowners across Kelowna and West Kelowna. If you have extra space in your single detached home, a secondary suite can be a great use of the space and reliable long-term investment. At Gord Turner Renovations, we have years of experience creating legal and fully permitted suites. Before you get started planning your new source of income, you might want to reach out to the Gord Turner team to discuss how we can help you have a safe and legal suite that confirms to current building code and city bylaws.
A carriage house is a small house built on a property that already has a house on it. These carriage homes or laneway homes are growing in popularity as land and space becomes more expensive. Cities like Kelowna have been allowing carriage homes since the early 2000’s. The City allows carriage homes to be built in most areas in the city-specific permits and approvals will apply in all applications
Carriage homes are great for providing a secondary income as a rental property or as a space with more privacy for family. These carriage homes can be built above garages or as freestanding buildings and include kitchen, one or two bedrooms, bathroom and laundry facilities. At Gord Turner Renovations, we help clients design and build a carriage home that best fits their needs. We have experience working with local municipalities to make sure that your carriage home meets local requirements and all the necessary permits have been acquired.
If you are considering a carriage home, give us a call and we will be happy to assist you with all aspects of the project from designs, to permit applications to the build.
