Back for its 9th year, this tour is a chance to explore five different Vancouver Specials and learn about how their owners often chose to update facades, heating and electrical, and floor plans. Simple box construction makes Vancouver Specials relatively straight forward to renovate. These are not precious heritage houses so people are comfortable with updating their facades and interiors for more contemporary tastes and to make them energy efficient. This tour of five houses shows how these familiar homes can be adapted for modern living and design tastes. The tour is sure to serve as inspiration for unique ways to renovate and update this 40 year old housing style.

Do you or someone you know live in a house that may be a good fit for one of our tours? We are continually searching for great examples of heritage or character, mid-century modern design, sympathetic lane homes behind heritage homes, or renovated Vancouver Specials to open on our tours. If you’d like to know more, or have your home considered for inclusion on a future tour, contact us 604 264 9642 or by email.
