Laneway House Tour

"Laneway House Tour: Walter and Mary Lee Chan House Infill

There are just a few weeks left until the Laneway House Tour. This year we have a great selection of lane homes, all built behind existing residences, including a new infill home built as part of the restoration of the Walter and Mary Lee Chan house in Strathcona. The principal residence was recognized as a Places That Matter site in 2012 as the Chans were instrumental in the fight to save Strathcona in the 1960s.

Also on tour are a number of great examples of sustainable building methods with high efficiency mechanical systems and ideas inspired by Passive House guidelines. These homes offer great inspiration for those considering building a new lane home, including how to create a design that works with the principal home.
