When you walk in (maybe after you park your car in the garage) you’re greeted by an entry. Relative to a lot of the tiny homes that I feature here, this is pretty large and spacious.
Once you walk inside (downstairs) you can go directly upstairs which leads you to the kitchen, lounge, and balcony area with high ceilings, open space, and skylights. If you’ve decided that a tiny house isn’t for you right now, would you still consider the simple life in a small home instead?
Some laneway houses in Vancouver are required to have an integrated garage, depends on lot size and other rules. I know that most of the time I am criticlle on here but be that as it may, this house looks to me that the balcony is facing an ally not a lane as the floor plan shows. The kitchen window needs to be larger and wider for more access to the roof garden; the bedroom window needs to be bigger; the shower angle is pretty darn steep and how high is it?
It isn’t entirely clear from the 3D plan views but I think the garage floor is actually a few steps above the adjacent bedroom floor?


Setting the roof angle to south-north instead of north-south would probably be necessary for that change. Putting the kitchen along the short wall with a counter perpendicular as Susan and Nancy suggested would allow for a more flexible living area.
As soon as I saw that this house was a small split level, I stopped seriously considering it. He has a passion for exploring and sharing tiny homes (from yurts and RVs to tiny cabins and cottages) and inspiring simple living stories. I would probably prefer a small house to a tiny house, at least in an urban location like this. The balcony over the laneway isn’t a welcoming view, it would be better placed on the other side of the house sharing a view, if not a garden, with the main house.

The best things about this house are the balconies and the storage, especially the closet at the entry. The garage pushed back through the building would allow a balcony area with steps to access the garden.
In the above design the garden at the back cannot be seen from the house and has to be accessed through the side door in the garage. A fence that stops at 3 or 4 foot would give privacy without impacting security in the city. Then again, in my prior life I had a 4500 sq ft home with a 3 car garage, an acre of landscaped yard. I wouldn’t want to run upstairs every time I wanted something from the kitchen or lug my groceries up there.
