Petite Homes models, also known as Accessory Dwelling Units or ADUs, are legal in a growing list of municipalities across Canada, including Windsor, Ontario, thanks to many new recent laws and bylaws that have made ADUs much easier to permit, approve and build.
While each municipality is different, the City of Windsor, by example, has zoned a special parking exemption zone around the majority of the city to encourage the development of ADUs. In other municipalities where additional parking spots may be required, we can help you plan for this in the site design process.
Connections to utilities such as hydro and sewage vary depending on site conditions and municipal regulations. We’ll provide an estimate for you once we’ve reviewed your property.
The first step is to let us know the address where you’d like to build a Petite Home model to ensure your lot is eligible for an ADU.
After we’ve determined that your property is eligible for an ADU, we’ll be in touch to schedule an introductory meeting where we’ll review the process with you and address any questions you might have.
The Craftsman starts at $225,000. The price includes the start-to-finish process of building the home: design work, permits, approvals, construction materials, fit-and-finish, and construction.*
*Costs and income potential ﬁgures are estimates only. Actual costs and values determined by market.
Having an ADU such as The Craftman can increase property value and therefore can boost the price of the primary home when it’s time to sell. However, many factors go into home prices, and every case is unique.
