                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2009

                      About the owner: We are the owners of the main house on the property. In 2009 we built the first laneway house built by owner in our neighborhood under new city zoning that was inspired by the city's eco-density initiatives. Superior craftsmanship, functional design and sustainable living have guided the creation of this unique space. We welcome feedback and enjoy connecting with our guests that come from near and far to stay close to family in the neighborhood, or simply to enjoy the comfort yet convenience of our residential, yet central city location. We welcome families and pets and have supplies to accommodate both children and your furry friends which can be arranged as needed. We are believers in the process of Kaizen, 'slow and constant change' so always welcome the feedback of our guests.
