About Us

At Lanecraft, we believe in increasing your property's value by building beautiful, liveable dwellings on under-utilized land. Maybe you need your laneway or coach house to provide rental income, or maybe it will enable a family member to live in their own space, while remaining close to you. Either way, our goal is to make life better, with a beautiful, high quality laneway house. We custom design each home with your specific needs, lot size and orientation in mind.

Thomas Frauenberger is a longtime supporter of affordable laneway housing. In 2009, he co-founded Lanecraft and oversees the design, development and building process of every project. Thomas completed his Bachelor's degree in Commerce and a Masters in Architecture at UBC. His architecture and design background, financial skills, and work experience in property development and project management, give him a unique basis from which to design and build custom laneway homes for his clients.

What sets us apart: Great Design and Quality Construction
He is supported by a seasoned construction manager and skilled tradespeople. Working together, the Lanecraft team has created numerous practical, logical and beautiful laneway homes. Featured in the Vancouver Heritage Foundation's annual Laneway House Tour, Lanecraft homes consistently gather accolades for their clever layout, square footage and quality finishes.
