Are You Interested in Laneway Housing?
Tamlin has completed this beautiful Laneway Home in North Vancouver.
A laneway house is a form of housing that is gaining popularity on the west coast of Canada, especially in the Metro Vancouver area. These homes are typically built into pre-existing lots, usually in the backyard and opening onto the back lane. Most laneway houses are small, and compliment the property in which it is constructed. While most popular in Vancouver, similar housing has been appearing in other dense Canadian cities like Burnaby and the Greater Vancouver Regional District.
Laneway Homes are becoming more popular now for many reasons including:
- A second source of income
- Use as a secondary suite / office
- Replacement of a back yard garage
- Increases urban density while retaining the neighborhood look
- Affordability to live in the city
- Eliminates commuting to your downtown office
Testimonial from our laneway homeowner:
……Everyone loves our new laneway home – especially me. The neighbours comment that it is humble, yet attractive and that it makes our alley look welcoming. The interior trades always commented on the unique design and the finishing touches. Even the planners, engineers and inspectors from North Van City have given us two thumbs up. Everyone loves the cedar beams and trusses. The experience, knowledge, patient guidance provided by Tamlin has helped to make my vision a reality. I can’t believe that “I” built my dream home. Most importantly, it is a beautiful, functional and welcoming place to live. My expectations were far exceeded – from the initial design meeting to the payment of the final bill (thank you Joanne!). Everyone that I worked with went above and beyond. I will recommend Tamlin to everyone. ~ S. Parkinson
