Airbnb of the week: Toronto pottery studio turned into a laneway loft

I've always been curious about laneway houses. They seem like an awesome option to remedy the current housing crisis. And yet, I wonder if it really would feel like sleeping in a glorified garage or shed. airbnb danforth laneway houseWell, if you're curious like I am, for $72 a night you can found out if the laneway home thing is really all it's cracked up to be.

But apart from that the place is bright, airy and cozy.
