Laneway homes became legal in Toronto in the summer of 2018. This was directly related to an effort to create density, affordable housing for renters, and income opportunities for existing property owners. Our team of Partners and experts led the charge to make laneway homes legal in Toronto. Whether you are considering a laneway home for a home office, home spa or studio, in-law or nanny suite, or as an alternative to a basement rental apartment, the Alair Homes Forest Hill team can help you explore your options and make the most of your laneway.
While building a laneway home is now easier than ever, it is important to understand how to navigate the new legislation to make the most of your opportunity.

We recently completed a full home renovation and had the pleasure of working with Andrew and Chad throughout the process.
Our initial meeting with Andrew put us at ease as he was low pressure and prioritized transparency. After meeting Chad, our project manager I immediately appreciated thoroughness and honesty.
Throughout the renovation I found that both Chad and Andrew were always available to chat, managed the project well and were open with us, giving us the opportunity to make the big decisions with lots of information and consultation. Moreover, the quality of work was fantastic and I remain impressed nine months following the completion of the project.
I continue to be impressed with Chad’s follow ups months after the renovations were completed. It is clear that he prioritizes the client’s satisfaction over the long term, which speaks to his interest in doing quality work.
I would highly recommend Alair to anyone that I know and, should the opportunity arise in the future, I would definitely work with them again.
