We wanted to build a modern home with very good insulating and eco-friendly design elements. Lanefab fit the bill as they build homes with pre-fabricated SIP panels. They also have designer that's great with modern designs that aren't cookie cutter and out-of-the-box thinking. Designer and Contractor work closely together to get the maximum from the design and quality of build. If you're looking for precise, well designed and engineered homes consider Lanefab!

"Lanefab created Vancouver's first laneway house - a compact, smartly designed 720 square foot residence that's built with sustainability at the forefront."
Western Living Magazine, October 2010
“Lanefab has emerged as Vancouver’s most steadfast builder --- and promoter --- of affordable small homes that are both comfortably designed and energy efficient... [their] open-source approach to design and problem-solving... has positioned Lanefab not only as one of this city’s most prominent small house builder[s], but also as a respected thought-leader...”
Monte Paulson - Red Door Energy Advisors
“[Lanefab] creates grand designs on a small scale. Motivated by a desire to build sustainable cities, the Vancouver-based designer builds homes for a future where scarce energy supplies and climate change will dictate the way we live... [they’re] always looked for ways to tweak and challenge current lifestyle choices and expectations.”
Enterprise Magazine, July 2011
We did a lot of investigating before we started and had several meetings with Mat and Bryn, narrowing down the options and deciding on design, finishes and cost and the all important question of timing. The design was first rate, the finishes were as promised and the cost was almost precisely as quoted. Any variations were by and large the result of changes we wanted. The work was performed quickly and on time with a minimum of disruption to us and to our neighbours. The work crew and subs were skilled and efficient and any concerns we had were promptly addressed. So, in a few words, yes we were very happy with Lanefab.T&C in Dunbar (Lane House)
