How Does it Work?

Hobby Loft Garden Suites are barrier-free homes built on existing properties and used primarily as rental suites for people with mobility challenges. Earn up to $520* a month in passive income while adding up to 100% of the build cost to your original property value.

*The return on investment for each individual property may vary depending on market conditions, construction value and financial structure.

The Home

Hobby Loft Garden Suite

Studies show that doing what you love improves your quality of life. That's why the Hobby Loft Garden Suite features a non-traditional floor plan that includes a flexible living space so tenants can pursue a hobby or passion independently. Our homes don’t just eliminate physical barriers — they eliminate barriers to happiness.

Our home building process starts with a consultation to understand your needs and requirements. We then create a customized plan and design for your home. Once the plan is approved, our team begins construction, ensuring that every step is carried out with precision and attention to detail.

Down arrow to expand icon

The cost of building a home can vary depending on factors such as the size, design, materials, and additional features. We offer competitive pricing and will provide you with a detailed quote based on your specific requirements. Our team will work closely with you to ensure that the project stays within your budget.

How does the payment schedule work?
Down arrow to expand icon

There is a 10% deposit that is provided to the builder before construction. As part of the building contract, certain milestones are set (such as “after framing inspection”) where a draw would then be issued to the builder. This can either come from the lending bank or whoever is financing the project.
