Building a Secondary Suite with Arbutus Properties

We are very excited about the introduction of the Secondary Suite Incentive Program by the province. As a homebuilder, when Arbutus Properties builds you a secondary suite at the time of purchase, your suite will also be covered under the 5-Year New Home Warranty Program.

If you do not choose to build a secondary suite right away, you can still have your private contractor build the suite, since all of our Laneway Home Models are legal suite ready with a separate side entrance.

What does Arbutus Include in a Laneway Home’s Secondary Suite?

The price to build a secondary suite  with Arbutus Properties is $56,200 + taxes for all our Laneway Home Models. This includes:

  • Full kitchen and stainless steel appliances
  • Full 4-piece bathroom
  • Bedroom with closet
  • Stacked washer and dryer
  • Walkway to the suite entrance
  • Painted stairs leading down to the suite
