ADU | Modular Homes


Are you ready to go big in a tiny house? Then you’ll love the Orca Park Model, the newest tiny home from Mint! 


New zoning in BC means local governments across the province are revising their land use regulations to permit a minimum of one to six units of housing on lots formerly recognized as single-family or duplex lots.

The aim of this new legislation is to increase housing supply, create more diverse housing choices, and over time, contribute to more affordable housing across BC.

This means if you own a house with land in BC it is possible to add one to six additional housing units (based on lot size and location) to the property as long as you have the following:

  • Enough space for the new dwelling(s) with proper setbacks from property lines and existing buildings. (outlined by city/town)
  • Off-street parking for 1-2 cars (requirements may vary by city/town).
  • Existing services on site. (requirements to tie into existing services may vary by city/town).

These new regulations are for ADUs (Accessory Dwelling Units) and SSMUHs (Small-Scale Multi-Unit Housing) which both refer to a range of buildings that are self-contained (separate from the primary residence) which have cooking, sleeping and bathroom facilities.

Essentially they are Tiny Homes!

BC Housing Secondary Suite Incentive Program

The Secondary Suite Incentive Program (SSIP) will help homeowners create affordable housing in their communities. The program will provide money to help homeowners create a new secondary suite on their property to be rented out for below-market value.

Homeowners who qualify will receive up to 50% of the cost of renovations, up to a maximum of $40,000.

The program will provide a rebate in the form of a forgivable loan—a loan that does not need to be repaid if the homeowner follows the terms of the program.

For the loan to be forgiven, the new unit must be located on the same property where the homeowner lives and must be rented out at below-market rates, set by BC Housing, for at least five years.

Applications will be approved on a first-come, first served basis until annual funding is used up.

Modular Home Inquiry

Common Questions About Modular Homes

1. What is a modular home?

A modular home is built in a factory setting and transported in sections to the building site, where it is assembled and placed on a permanent foundation.

2. How does a modular home differ from a traditional stick-built home?

Modular homes are built off-site in a controlled environment, which can lead to shorter construction times and lower costs compared to traditional homes built entirely on-site.

3. Are modular homes cheaper than traditional homes?

Most often Yes. While costs can vary, modular homes can sometimes be more cost-effective due to efficiencies in the construction process. However, factors like customization, location, and site preparation can influence overall costs.

4. Can modular homes be customized?

Yes, modular homes may be customized in terms of floor plans, finishes, and features. Mint offers a range of options to suit different preferences and budgets.

5. What are the financing options for modular homes?

Financing for modular homes is similar to that of traditional homes, including options such as mortgages. It’s important to work with a mortgage broker familiar with modular construction to ensure a smooth financing process.

6. What are the quality standards for modular homes?

Modular homes are built to meet BC building codes and standards as traditional homes. Mint adheres to stringent quality control processes in our factory. 

7. How long does it take to build and install a modular home?

Construction time for a modular home can be shorter compared to a traditional build, typically ranging from 8-12 weeks depending on the complexity and size of the home.

8. What are the transportation and installation logistics for a modular home?

Our homes are transported in sections (modules) to the site using specialized trucks. On-site, a crane is usually used to lift the modules into place onto a prepared foundation.
