What is a Laneway house?

Essentially, a Laneway house (sometimes called an infill house) is a small home at the rear of a close to a lane with a dwelling unit that varies in size from 550sq ft to 940 sq ft. The benefits of laneways are endless but for starters, they increase the diversity of rentals units in low-density homes. Visit the How to guide by the City of Vancouver.

How much will my Laneway house cost?

Though infill homes are often built to offer residents affordable housing solutions, the cost of building can actually be quite high. Urban lots and infill development permits grow more and more expensive, leaving less to be spent on the homes themselves. According to our previous projects and PHW homes

, the average Vancouver Laneway home is about $300,000. Our crew creates cost-effective, adaptive construction techniques to give you the best bang for your buck. Our affordable solutions makes the creation of these highly in-demand homes easier on your budget.

We will work together to create a design that meets your aesthetic and functional needs while staying within budget. This is a very critical part of the renovation process. It will determine what we will be renovating, what permits we will require, as well as what budgets we set aside for materials. This step is more than just creating a nice design, but rather the first step of a successful renovation.
