What is a Garden Suite?


A garden suite is a small home built or installed in the back or side yard of an existing single-family house. Unlike a home extension, it’s not usually attached to the main home – it is self-contained, with living spaces such as a kitchen, bedrooms, and bathroom.

Garden suites also go by the name of granny suite, auxiliary suite or coach house.

Garden suites provide affordable housing. They can be barrier-free and should be easy to maintain.

At AKH we understand the complexity of creating a garden suite from the ground up.


This process includes: initial design, engineering and drawings, numerous city permit applications, and finally the construction stage. We navigate through these processes with knowledge and ease which creates a stress-free and enjoyable project for us and our investors!
