Must the densification of Vancouver come at the sacrifice of existing structures? The VHF’s Laneway House Tour offers a look at an increasingly popular alternative.  See seven examples of laneway houses built behind existing residences, and learn from the architects, builders and homeowners why the lane house is a great option for many families. It happens Saturday, October 19, 1:00 – 5:00 p.m. To purchase tickets, visit or call (604) 264-9642.
