Edda Creative is a full-service general contractor in Victoria BC that can manage your garden suite project from design, permitting, through to construction.

Recent changes to Victoria and Saanich regulations have now allowed property owners to build garden suites on their property. Garden suites, also known as laneway houses, garage suites or carriage houses are defined by the City of Victoria as: “a legal, detached, ground-oriented rental suite located in the backyard of a property with a single-family home as its primary use.”

Garden suites are a great way to develop your property without buying more land. They are ideal for expanding space that is completely separate from the main house, allowing for less disturbance and more privacy between dwellings. If you want an extra source of income, it’s like renting a basement suite without having to share your home.

Garden suites increase property value and allow for extra revenue if rented out, which can pay for itself in time. Call us to discuss ballpark costs, or we can provide an estimate if you’d like a more specific price.

Building a garden suite or infill project can be a difficult process. We can provide a much shorter timeline and pain-free process. We have a deep understanding of zoning bylaws and other regulations and are skilled at working with the City of Victoria and other municipalities to bring projects to life.

Whether you want to keep family close with a detached in-law suite or create a rental property, we know that you will love the end product.
