Coach houses and carriage houses are becoming increasing popular in the Comox Valley. FORMATURA has some unique expertise in laneway housing, particularly when it comes to designing enjoyable, functional small spaces. As well, we understand the nuances of what is allowable under OCPs and different local bylaws.
This is a series of photos showing some of the key steps involved in constructing one of our popular smaller designs.
Carriage House – Double Garage
This laneway house was designed to maximize interior space, yet still meet the footprint and height constraints of Comox’s building bylaws.
Level one – two car garage, WC
Level two – 400 sq ft office / storage
Level two – 400 sq ft suite
Footprint – 530 sq ft
In addition to creating the building design, FORMATURA was hired to provide construction drawings and to act as a consultant during the construction process. The client built the home, and is finishing it as his schedule permits.
