“Skinny homes” have been a popular trend in our city and are typically built on lots that are 25 to 33 feet wide. Their narrow floor plans offer simplicity and beauty. One key advantage is access to natural light, as narrow layouts permit daylight to enter the full depth of a space.
So, who buys skinny homes? Generally, it’s people, possibly young families, with good incomes who want to live in desirable neighbourhoods close to downtown and other core amenities. This influx of younger residents can really revitalize an older neighborhood.
