From kids who couch-surf to those who dream of radical rest homes, we all need the right living arrangements.

Recently, we launched a series about human architecture: new ways of living alone and together and you told us about interesting experiments that are under way...from the islands of B.C., to urban Ontario and rural Quebec, even one in a deep dark forest. We intend to check them all out. 

Robyn Braidwood of Coquitlam wrote, "This feeds a hunger I believe gnaws at us, nourishing a need to see possible living arrangements in fresh, slightly spicy, warm ways."

In that spirit, here is Kyla Hanington of Prince Rupert, B.C., who has pushed a few envelopes. She is a member of a growing demographic known as the LATs, Living Apart Together.
