Laneway Home in Vancouver
Well, most of the laneway home has been framed and we are starting on the roof now. As we said in our last post, it will be tricky to frame, but magnificent to live in! I have designed it to maximize the interior space and far outperform the usual way it is done. As I’ve said before though, it does cost more. Below are pictures of the work in progress, all lovingly hand cut on site and put together with the highest quality materials. After the drywall has been installed we will add the fine wood structural details like stained fir collar ties and wrapped fir ridge beams. The upper interior walls have been kept to 7’6” in height to showcase the ceiling and structural detail work. More updates to come as we progress with the work. We were blessed with excellent weather for this part of the work and were able to finish the roof completely just one day before the weather turned and rained hard for a few days. Also, we are getting a lot of attention from passers-by who are admiring the look of the house. It is definitely not a ‘box’ and will add to the neighborhood’s character.
