Two-Storey Laneway and Garden Suites in Toronto

Fixed-price, prefabricated housing with pre-set design options. Backyard housing delivered with certainty.

Why R-Suite?

Make use of your urban property, whether you intend to use it as generational housing, a guesthouse, a home office, or a rental property for supplementary income.

R-Hauz manages the entire process of Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) housing production; from property assessment, to permit approvals, to assembly, to construction and delivery.

With three distinct architectural designs to choose from, you can select the suite that suits you. All designs have been created to meet the City of Toronto Laneway and Garden Housing Guidelines.

The most cost effective way to increase the supply of housing is to provide property owners with the ability to solve their housing needs by unlocking the potential of their existing land.
