Our Mission

Provide top quality backyard suites to home owners in Halifax that they can be proud of, with minimal disruption to the client.  

About Backyard Suites

On September 1st, 2020, Halifax city council voted unanimously to amend the land use bylaws to allow for backyard suites throughout the municipality. Many are heralding this decision as a win for home owners and a positive step forward to fixing some of the ailments Halifax is experiencing.

At Hōmē, we have many years of experience in navigating building regulations as well as land use bylaws. This knowledge has lead us to make the obvious decision – the best way forward is to supply units that are built to a high standard off-site with minimal on-site work. We have options to suit almost any site including bachelor, 1 Bedroom and 2 Bedroom units with the ability to go around, or in some cases, over existing homes. Minimal disruption, maximum enjoyment.
