Carriage Homes

In the Central Okanagan home owners are increasingly exploring the option of building carriage homes on their existing properties for a variety of reasons. Carriage home usages include:

  • rental suites
  • housing for extended family members
  • guest accommodations
  • home offices
  • home based businesses

Little House Contracting specializes in the construction of these small homes.

If a carriage home is something that you have thought about adding to your real estate portfolio, here are a few helpful questions to ask yourself:

  1. Is your property currently zoned to allow for a carriage home?
  2. If your property is not zoned to allow for a carriage home, would it be reasonable to rezone to build a second dwelling on your land?
  3. What is the rental situation in your area? Is there a demand for rental accommodation?
  4. Are you interested in managing tenants on your property?
  5. What will the monthly costs of your carriage home be and what amount of revenue will your carriage home generate? Will your cash flow be positive?
  6. How long will it take to pay off the money invested? Once the money invested is paid off, what will your monthly income be?
  7. Will the cost of building your carriage home increase the value of your property in proportion to the amount you will spend to build?
  8. Do you have a secondary use for carriage home space?
