Our clients wanted to build a single level laneway home in Vancouver, to accommodate for their special needs daughter and to be closer to their family. We are big believers in combining traditional values with innovative building technologies, so construction features for this laneway include Nudura Insulated Concrete Forms (ICFs), and SIGA Majvest, a weatherproof and permeable membrane for an air/weather tight facade. We installed vinyl windows, a large vinyl sliding door, a fiberglass entry door, and a Navien condensing combination boiler for both their on demand hot water and in floor radiant heat. These items paired together create an efficient, high performing home. The exterior is clad in smooth painted, James Hardie board and batten siding with an asphalt shingled roof. The front entrance showcases a custom overhang with painted soffits, and a standing seam metal roof. The interior of the home features high vaulted ceilings in the living room and master bedroom, an attic storage mezzanine, engineered hardwood floors with no thresholds, custom painted full height cabinetry for loads of storage (you can never have enough), and an electric fireplace.
We are thrilled to be nominated and would like to congratulate all the other finalists of the evening!
