A carriage house, also known as a coach house, is a second house located on a residential property. As housing prices go up in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia, including the Fraser Valley, building a carriage home can be a practical solution for accommodating college aged family members or aging parents. Carriage houses are also a great way to bring in some residual rental income.
One of our current design projects is a carriage home. This eco-friendly house will have plenty of storage, boutique style living quarters, and a generous workshop. Our client is going to be installing a residential rainwater harvesting system as well. We are excited to be designing this coach home!
We are also in the finishing stages of building an energy efficient coach house in the Fraser Valley. This home is using solar, geo exchange, rainwater collection, and other energy saving technologies.
Are you thinking of adding a coach house to your existing property? We are experienced in both the design and construction of these homes. Call us today!
