I just wanted to commend that approach as I personally can't stand vinyl siding and i wish the city would really limit the amount of it used in suburban developments. I know the alternatives can be more expensive but that siding can really look awful over time and whole neighbourhoods of vinyl siding built in the 80s don't look good at all.

So... its a duplex?

"No No, its two separate units with different entrances in the same house, NOT a duplex."

This seems to be a trend... Phoenix Homes has a similar series of models with income suites.

Secondary suits are also attractive to people who are trying to house their aging parents.
