Studios, laneway houses and small homes

Let’s build a home or accessory building that fits your property and your budget.

We offer easy building kits with all the materials pre-cut so you save time, save money and guarantee quality! We can even customize your kit, get your permits and build it for you.

We help people build quality homes for less. Because better homes improve our lives financially, environmentally and socially.

Goldfinch Design specializes in designs and kits for small buildings that are simple, beautiful and well-crafted. By keeping our designs efficient and making smart use of materials, we can help keep the cost of building low and ensure your project makes financial sense.

Our building kits include everything

From framing to insulation, windows, doors and all the little bits… everything cut and ready to assemble.

A building kit can be purchased for any of our pre-designed plans and can be customized to your needs if desired.

Did you know that labour alone typically accounts for 40 to 60% of a new build? Kits radically reduce that cost. No matter who builds it – yourself, Goldfinch or a contractor – a kit is the most efficient and cost effective way to build.

Goldfinch kits include:

1 All the materials
2 Step-by-step easy-to-follow assembly instructions
3 Colour-coded illustrations
4 Every piece and panel labelled and cut to shape
5 Support by phone/email
