Bedroom suite over garage in Edmonton

There are many good reasons to add a legal apartment/suite to your garage.  You may need the added living space for family members or you desire to create a legal rental space that will generate revenue.

“You really need to think out what you want,” says Daniel Burton, a principal of Burton Quality Builders.   “If you are building a rental property, you know that the cost will be offset by the rental income you will earn.   If the space is for you, you gain when you sell your property but more importantly, you now have this additional comfortable area for personal use.”

It’s also important to note that a legal apartment cannot be built on top of a pre-existing detached one-storey garage unless the concrete slab or foundation has an engineered stamp to support the additional load. Most builders have not designed pre-existing garage slabs and foundations to meet the requirements for a second storey garage. While you may think that tearing down your pre-existing garage and concrete slab is too expensive, it can actually be an affordable option. In some cases, not even costing more than a couple months rent.

Refinishing your basement could add a lot of living space to your home. For example, if you live in a two-storey home, refinishing your basement could give you about 30% more living space and that number jumps up to about 40% if you have a one-storey home.
