A Laneway House that’s a Perfect Fit,
The trick to this piece of the project was that it had to be in the same style as the main house as well. That might be a bit of an issue with a smaller space, but as laneway houses go, this one is on the bigger side with 850 square feet, 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms (comparable to a large condo or small townhouse).
Thanks to Vancouver’s rainforest climate that can see six months or more of overcast skies, maximizing living space means maximizing lighting —
no matter the size of your home. We installed large windows and skylights into this laneway house to maximize illumination; then, just to cover our bases, we put in radiant floor heating and air conditioning. To match the main house on the lot, we put in cedar siding and stylish Euro line windows. A fully-integrated sound and light system gives this cozy laneway house provides pleasant spaces for entertaining as well. In the end, the customer has two fully-functioning living spaces at one address!
