Carriage House in the Comox Valley

Carriage House Comox Valley

Fanny Bay Carriage house


Our Fanny Bay carriage house which was completed in the Comox Valley Reginal district was a great project for us. We took this homeowner from the idea of wanting to build a home and value to their property with plans to later down the road build the dream home. When they were able to build this home on this property it increased their property value substantially and was able to get them closer to their dream of a forever home. We had to take into mind where the dream home was going to go later on.  The video below will share with you the details that we did on this project.

A Carriage House as a Starter Home

A carriage house/starter home is a great way to allow you to purchase the larger property you want (without the pressure of having to build a “bigger” home right away). As your life and family grows, so can your future expansions of the property. When you have a dwelling on the property (e.g. a carriage house), the bank is more likely to see the property as a stronger asset, which means that (if you’re not planning to move into the carriage house right away) this starter home can then be rented out. But when you do decide to move into your carriage house, and when you go to build your forever home, you will have the awesome advantage of monitoring your new/forever house while it’s being built right in front of your eyes.

If you’re deciding to build a carriage house as your starter home on your new property (whether to move into or rent out), it’s a great idea to bring in a general contractor to make sure you have a well thought-out, long term plan. For instance, all of the underground service work (plumbing, electrical, sewer) could be planned to allow future expansion. If this is something you are interested in discussing, we at BRC can help!

Dedication To Home Building:


Health and Comfort,


and Energy Efficiency  :

We achieve this by being brought in on your project right from the start to help guide you through decision making and understanding your needs.


Enjoyment  :

We have a passion for Craftsman homes with Rustic details – and Timber Framing is something we get excited about.

Process To Good Communication:

What we want to do Contracting with Communication – and we can do this with our Project Management Software, which not only organizes YOUR job but also invites online communication between everyone involved in the project.

We will be able to have that one-on-one interaction – whether it be in person or through the software – so any decisions made throughout the building process will be done together.
