About us

We got married. We went on our honeymoon to Asia. We built a (pint-sized) house. This blog is a log of our journey through the process of designing and building a customized laneway house and life thereafter – living small in Vancouver, Canada.

What do you do when a city’s exorbitant real estate prices leave you with very few options for owning a home in your home town? Ask your very cool parents if you can build a house on their lot, and find a company like the fabulous Smallworks to help you design and build it.

Scott is a sound designer and musician.

Tania is a visual artist and graphic designer.

Together they are scottania.
