Join us on Saturday October 20th and take part in third Laneway House Tour. The first Laneway Tour in December 2010 opened five newly constructed laneway homes behind existing houses in historic neighbourhoods.  Norburn Lighting is a proud contributor to the project working with one of Vancouver’s premier builders, Urban Lanehomes.

Laneway housing can be a tool for owners of older homes to densify and improve their property while contributing to the preservation of their historic neighourhood.
Our hope is for laneway housing to be used as a tool to preserve heritage homes and prevent demolitions. Only laneway houses constructed behind existing houses have been opened on this tour.

Urban Lanehomes have built the what we consider the best Lanehome ever built in Vancouver and have been selected as a featured home for this prestigious event. Over 1,000 people are expected to visit.
