The Kitsilano prefab home model by Karoleena is a two-story modern-style single family home. At only 16 feet wide, this home is perfect for narrow urban lots. The floor plan of the home offers open, light-filled two level living with public spaces on the first story and bedrooms on the second.

The home offers multiple entries – one at front and one at the side of the home. The front entry opens to a sitting area and adjacent half bath. The side entry opens to a mudroom with a small storage and sitting area. Once in the home, the main floor layout features a large kitchen with central island and open living room area with fireplace and large floor to ceiling windows.

The upper level floor plan provides a master bedroom and bathroom and an additional bedroom and full bath and a full width (16′) laundry room.
