It’s show time! The Vancouver Heritage Foundation Laneway House Tour!

No more rehearsing and nursing our part, we know every part by heart.

Today we’ll spend the afternoon up at the laneway house to meet and greet the participants in the Vancouver Heritage Foundation Laneway House Tour. We are expecting a few hundred people to come through the house, and it is as ready as it can be. The electicity was connected yesterday.

I dropped by the build to find our builder, Angelito, working with the finishing carpenters, the cabinet installer, the electrician, the tiler, the painter, and a couple of other people I couldn’t place.  To say it was a hive of activity would be an insult (busy bees? Ha! slackers in comparison).

We’re the last house on the laneway ticket, at Windermere and 8th Avenue, close to Rupert and Broadway.

If you don’t have a ticket, you can get one at the information booth (Garage of 945 W 33rd Ave.) from 12 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.

Even if you never make it out our way, I heartily encourage you to buy a ticket, support the VHF, and see some of the other houses out there.  You will never have a better opportunity to see a diversity of laneway homes.

By the way, the outside of the house looks a little different than on the ticket — the siding is on and painted.

The shape -- not the colour.

So this is the shape of the house — not the colour.

See you there!
