ADU (ADDITIONAL DWELLING UNIT) SITE SUITABILITY REPORT

You can choose to use our 3rd party consultants or your own architect/ contractor/ designer for this site study. You can also chose to undertake this on your own with a visit to your local city hall for information.

The site suitability study, provides you with all the information you need to get started planning an additional dwelling on your property (either 2nd or 3rd unit). The report contains crucial information you and your 3rd party contractors require in order to properly plan the project.

Includes:

  • Zoning and permitted uses
  • Property details
  • Re-zoning, amendments or minor variances requires
  • Existing services on the property, and the impact of an ADU on those services (wells, septics, municipal water/sewer)
  • Setback requirements (potential locations on the site)
  • Spatial separation requirements (permitted distance from existing buildings on the property, property lines)
  • Property features impacting development
  • Estimated costs for site servicing
  • Our consultants are currently only servicing the province of Ontario in Canada.

PERMITTING

Once your order is finalised, you will need to contract the services of an architect, a designer or one of our third-party consultants to compile all the required drawings and accompanying documentation and submit them for Building Permits to your local Building Officials for review and approval. Since this is a factory built unit and built the same everytime the process is usually efficient and cost effective (based on municipalities). This is a third party service, which will be separately negotiated and billed by the third parties you retain, and is not included in the purchase price of the tiny home. This is an optional service, and you may equally choose to do this step yourself and apply for the permits directly with your local municipality.

Beginning this application right after the ordering process will ensure that your permit is well under way or has been approved by the time the unit arrives at your property for installation. Making the installation process seamless.

Please note that we do not have permitting consultant options for all municipalities throughout canada.

SHIPPING

30 days prior to the scheduled shipping date, our third party consultants will contact you and will provide an estimate for the tiny home shipping to your property and crane work. Depending on your requirements, you may choose to go with this service, or arrange the shipping on your own. This service is also an add-on service that you can attach to your order during the ordering process and during your visit to our Discovery Center.

INSTALLATION

Before the installation, the foundation, plumbing and electrical systems should be in place and ready for the tiny home’s arrival and hook up. Arrangements and charges for the required installation work are not included in the purchase price of your tiny home. You may choose to do this work yourself, or contract with our third-party consultants. Typically, those consultants will prepare the site for you and will coordinate the truck and crane booking, they will be there on site to coordinate the crane operator to land the unit on its foundation and complete the installation. Then they will connect all site utilities. The keys will be handed to you after the final walk through.

If you choose to, any and all additional decks, stairs, railings etc. may be installed at this time or scheduled for the future.
