"I am very happy to offer Jake Fry and his team at Smallworks the highest praise in their construction of my Laneway House in Vancouver. My craftsman style LWH was the first one built by Smallworks and one of the first (if not the first) to be completed under Vancouver’s new Laneway House guidelines. Smallworks is truly a one stop, turn-key operation for building a Laneway House. They worked hard to take care of us every step along the way from planning and finance to millwork and finishing. Being one of the first LWH’s to be built under the new LWH program, there was the occasional surprise from the City of Vancouver and various other external stakeholders as the kinks in the new program were ironed out. Jake and his crew were always on point and worked hard to not only anticipate these potential problems but also to solve them as efficiently as possible. I would also like to mention that Smallworks was very budget savvy. The design team and Jake himself were excellent at presenting me with a variety of options to tailor the entire project to work within our budget. Once we signed off on the project, the cost never changed and I never had to worry about hidden surprises. Hats off to Jake and everyone at Smallworks for championing the the LWH cause in Vancouver and raising the bar in terms of customer service, professionalism, and commitment to quality. If Smallworks were an auto-maker, it would be a well-designed and slick German auto factory."
