Amazing 760 Sq. Ft. Small House Built for a Graphic Artist


This is the Worthington Dr Home by Lanefab Design/Build. It’s a beautiful 760 sq. ft. custom live/work small home built for a graphic artist in Vancouver.

The home features a split-level floor plan with three levels of living spaces. Your living area and kitchen are on one side, then you’ve got an elevated office loft with your washer and dryer nook on the other side with access to an awesome outdoor balcony.

Finally, you’ll find your your cozy bedroom and bathroom tucked-in downstairs which is partially sunk to achieve more overall ceiling height while meeting a height restriction code of 19 feet. I could see myself living in a small home like this forever! How about you?

    LaneFab designs have always impressed me, and this is no exception. Indeed, I think this is my favorite to date. I’m a designer myself, and I could totally live in this place – a bright and open work space and a huge kitchen – sheer heaven.

    • Alex July 5, 2018, 12:34 pm

      Thanks Jaime I’m glad you enjoyed it so much too!

    Love it but don’t care for the “wood” treatment on the walls. Unfortunately
    I doubt something like this could be built in California due to strict
    building codes.

    • James D. July 5, 2018, 12:43 am

      Actually, most of them serve the same purpose as ADU’s and that is allowed in California…

      Laneway houses typically get built in pre-existing lots, usually in the backyard and opening onto the back lane… Thus the name…

      Like ADU’s they’re a way to increase population density and offset average housing costs, while keeping similar access to local resources.

    This house has been featured on the Internet for years. In fact, I think I may have seen it first on this same site?

    While that is a testament to the staying power of its design, and acknowledging that good ideas are perennial, let’s move on.

  • Joseph July 5, 2018, 12:26 am

    Another beautiful home! Great ideas throughout and the size is for many VERY MUCH a tiny or small home. I always appreciate the dreams and ideas of others who dare to display in this forum! Those that take the time and effort to show their ideas and accomplishments usually get an unusual amount of criticism here and I would suspect it would be from
    daydreams who never ever put a tiny or small house together as negativity turns into a stagnant way of life. All the homes shown have merit and are meaningful to the builder or owner. I have built and/or assisted in several tiny homes as I’m sure many followers have, I always look forward to the next set of photos as invariably I will see something even if just an unusual type of trim that makes me think “ good idea!” If you have never built a tiny or small house then take all the ideas you like and leave the rest! Keep looking and with an open mind. Remember the photos you see are not just daydreams from “ could have, would have, should have” critics but hard work, dollars and a sense of accomplishment. Stay positive. Build your home!

    I love this design!
    my only criticism is that I wouldn’t want the washer/dryer so far from the bathroom/bedroom space.
    other than that, great.

  • Joe July 5, 2018, 8:32 am

    Super job. Like it very much.

  • Brenda R July 6, 2018, 5:37 pm

    Interesting. Colors are not my choice, nor is the corrugated exterior. Relatively spacious, except for the bedroom – but at least it HAS a bedroom that is not a loft-with-no-headroom! Just sayin’.

  • Erica July 9, 2018, 9:41 pm

    Oh, yes, please! I love this. I currently rent a 460sf loft apartment with a kitchen about 1/3 the size of this one. This is pretty perfect for me.

  • Chelley July 10, 2018, 4:21 pm

    I’ve been enamored of tiny homes and tiny houses on wheels for some time now, but this is my first time commenting. I think this home is absolutely beautiful, and would be perfect for me – just need to find a lot to put it on. I love the reclaimed wood accent wall, the concrete floors and the layout with the open loft. I too would prefer the washer/dryer to be on the level with the bedroom, but other than that, I think it’s perfect. I wonder if Laneway sells the plans for building this model? I looked at their website, but not in depth. Thanks for posting this!

  • Otessa Regina Compton October 1, 2018, 3:19 pm

    I WOULD DECORATE THE INTERIOR COMPLETELY DIFFERENT, HAVING A MEDITERRANEAN AND TROPICAL INSPIRATION, BUT DAMN WE NEED MORE PLACES LIKE THIS. WE ALSO NEED MORE PLACES LIKE THIS HOME THAT ARE FRIENDLY TO PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES AND THOSE THAT NEED WHEELCHAIRS. MYSELF, I MUCH PREFER A BATHTUB THAN SHOWER, BUT BOTTOM LINE WE DO NEED MORE HOMES LIKE THIS ONE. BRING IT ON!!!
