WHAT IS ADAPTABLE LANEWAY

LIVING? 

Laneways For All is a non-profit organization and the founder of the Toronto ALL Standard. We're dedicated to educating and inspiring Toronto homeowners to build a new laneway home with three essential accessibility features to allow for adaptable living. Adaptable homes are designed to benefit as many people as possible, whether you are building your laneway home for a family member, for rental, or for just you later in life.

 
AGE-FRIENDLY
 

Laneway Homes with adaptable features allow for new parents with strollers to easily get in and out, permit your visitors using mobility devices to come over, and for family members and renters to live with ease later in life in your new Laneway Home.

MEETS YOUR
CHANGING NEEDS

Homes are built to see decades (perhaps centuries!) of use. Your new laneway home may initially be rented to a student, then lived in by your adult children, and perhaps you in retirement. Let's build in some adaptability now to make this happen!

SAVES YOU MONEY
 

The majority of homes do not offer much flexibility and renovations are stressful and costly. By building in our three recommended essential adaptability features, you will be future proofing your new home & your wallet.
