Are you thinking of designing and building a laneway house under Toronto’s new by-law? If so, this is a great way to see how architects and engineers have designed innovative, small spaces in the city and how they are approaching the numerous issues in order to comply with with the building code and zoning with the fewest possible headaches. No topic is taboo – we’re here to discuss what should be expected in terms of construction costs, permit costs, scheduling and professional fees to help you best determine how to approach your own laneway house project.

$30/pp incl. Continental buffet style breakfast. Architects from Thomson Architecture, Inc., Spaces by Rohan and others (four 10 minute presentations followed by 30 minutes of Q&A) will be presenting small-space designs, and laneway project case studies, as well as reviewing zoning, the Laneway by-law conformance, legal issues related to easements and site plan applications, and the myriad exceptions, as well as fire services recommendations and the city’s interpretation of these. We’ll also have builders and a Structural Engineer from Blackwell on hand to answer your questions. Add any food restrictions or preferences in the purchase notes please.

Please select the appropriate number of people in your party in the Quantity selection – the price is $30 per person (children under 10 are free). For more information please visit our blog posts on this subject here:
