INTERIOR DESIGN

Three distinct interior design packages are available for your Micro Home purchase. All designs are inspired by chic European trends. Little House Contracting worked closely with the award winning team at Sticks + Stones Design Group to create these interior packages. We are proud to offer the light and airy Stockholm, the traditionally inspired Barcelona and the modern, industrial Yorkshire packages to our customers. Customs packages can also be created as required.

LOT DEVELOPMENT & REVITALIZATION

The development of each lot is unique. As such, our experienced building manager will come to your home and provide a detailed quote outlining Lot Development and Revitalization costs for your Micro Home build. Development costs could include removal of existing structures, leveling of land, parking requirements, utilities upgrades etc. Revitalization costs include clean up and lot prep post build.

PROPERTY APPROVAL

Based on established relationships with City planners, Little House Contracting will work with our customers to ensure all City requirements are met for each Micro Home build. Our experienced team obtains all required development and building permits and, as required, for a set fee, will act on behalf of homeowners to apply for any variance permits or navigate the process of rezoning a property. Currently, Micro homes are permitted in the following zones:

Kelowna: Micro Homes are currently permitted on RU6, RU1c, RU2c, RR1c, RR2c, RR3c  or A1c  zoned properties. Other properties may request zoning changes to allow for micro homes providing they meet certain criteria.

West Kelowna: On September 29, 2015 West Kelowna Council took measures to increase opportunities for affordable housing and housing choice within the City of West Kelowna. Secondary houses are now a permitted  on RC1, RC2, R1, R1L, RU1 , RU2, RU3, RU4, RU5 and A1 properties as long as they meet minimum parcel sizes. There is a legalization process that all property owners must engage in . Only one secondary  house is permitted per parcel.
