What is a garden suite?

Garden suites are separate dwellings located behind the principal residence. A garden suite is a housing unit that integrates seamlessly into an existing residential area. These units are small-scale housing units and can be used to address growing housing market problems.

Other names for garden suites are granny flat, coachhouse, and tiny home. This law, which was recently passed in Toronto, allows the construction and use garden suites on existing properties that don’t abut a laneway.

Laneway Suite (Toronto)

We hired 2x2 to build our laneway suite, a double garage and 2 bedroom unit, and it was the best decision. Not only did they start right away, finish quickly despite being affected by covid, (supply chain issues), also completed within budget. Loved working with Kyle who managed the project and addressed issues promptly and working with Lorne who provided excellent prices. They handled all the work with our architect and arranged for all building inspections which assured us that everything was built according to code. They provided us with excellent finishes within budget and we couldn't be happier. We are exploring other construction upgrades and will not hesitate to hire them again!

I hired 2x2 last year to build my laneway home in Toronto. I am beyond happy with the results! The home is immaculate and turned out better than I imagined. Built in the rear of my property facing the laneway, there are unique challenges to managing this type of build but they navigated it wonderfully. 2x2 and Kyle (the main contractor I communicated with) were professional and honest. In an industry where empty promises and cost overruns seem to be the norm, they were reliable and the price I paid was the price they quoted me at the start. I highly recommend them!

2x2 Construction worked on a massive project for us that included demolition, reconstruction, electrical, structural, flooring, painting and crown moulding. Keeping to a strict timeline, they completed the job on time. A young energetic team with good work ethic and skills, and grounded by a senior partner who brings expertise to the group. The end product speaks for itself. Well Done!
