This Little Laneway House In Toronto Has An Upstairs Bedroom Overlooking The Street

A garage has been converted into a small laneway house.

Creative Union Network Inc. has designed a small laneway house in Toronto, Canada, that was originally built as a garage.

The building occupied a prominent location on the corner of the lane and main street. The original structure, although rundown, was a well-loved structure that made an outsized impact on the neighborhood’s collective memory.
