Meet an Adorable Canadian Version of the Guest House, Laneway Houses! Canada is known for their friendly culture, French influences, and now their Laneway houses. These smaller homes came about in an effort to encourage higher density in homes with the rising population. The Laneway house is the perfect solution for aging parents, adult children, or to rent out for supplemental income! Check out this Laneway house by Smallworks builders and you’ll understand why we hope the trend catches on!
