Laneway house specialist Lanefab Design/Build was responsible for both the design and construction of this nicely done tiny house. They created a small house with two bedrooms in 800 square feet of living space. The lower level is one large open room containing all the social spaces. A couple of steps up, the bottom stair landing doubles as the entry, with access from both the front door and the garage. Narrow metal balusters keep the stairs open to the living area. Working within the citys height and massing constraints, Lanefab was able to tuck the two bedrooms and a bathroom into the gabled roof space. To get a bit more headroom on both levels, the house was dug about a foot and a half into the ground. That still allowed a good view of the park through the tiny home's living areas sliding glass doors.

The tiny house movement also known as the tiny house movement, is a famous description for the architectural and social movement that advocates living simply in small homes. In the United States the average size of new single family homes grew from 1,780 square feet in 1978 to 2,479 square feet in 2007, and to 2,662 square feet in 2013, despite a decrease in the actual size of the average family. Reasons for this include increased material wealth and prestige. The tiny house movement is a return to houses of less than 1,000 square feet. Frequently the distinction is made between small between 400 square feet and 1,000 square feet, and tiny houses that are less than 400 square feet, with some houses as small as 80 square feet. Downsizing to a tiny house is a great way to do away with large mortgages, hydro bills and all the stuff that goes into a large house, and a way to live a more sustainable lifestyle.
