Laneway houses and Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) are increasingly popular building forms to address the need for densification and increasing the availability of housing in urban areas. Simultaneously, tiny houses are being incorporated into the mainstream building lexicon and being touted as a strategy to increase affordable housing availability. As these building forms become incorporated into planning policies, there are significant challenges and opportunities faced by property owners, builders, planners and other municipal officials.
Join our panelists for presentation of two case studies; a laneway house in Hamilton, Ontario and a tiny home development in St. Thomas, Ontario. Following this will be a discussion of the broader questions around these building forms, how some of the challenges can be addressed, and an opportunity for your questions to be answered.
