Garage suites are gradually gaining popularity in Edmonton and other parts of Alberta. The city is embracing new laws in its mature neighborhoods allowing people to be more creative with garage designs. Building a suite on top of your garage is not only a valuable investment but can also benefit your family a great deal.
A source of extra income
It is becoming increasingly rare to come across a comfortable yet affordable living space within Edmonton. By constructing a suite above your garage, you create an opportunity to generate extra income for your household. There are many people in the city, predominantly students, single professionals and young couples, who are on the lookout for an affordable living space. Renting out the suite above your garage can help you meet running and repair costs. The rental income can allow you to install an air conditioning unit as well as other accessories without dipping into your pockets. Such suites also qualify for a $20,000 grant from the city of Edmonton as part of the bid to lower construction costs.

Benefits of Constructing a Garage Suite in Edmonton
Affordability and privacy
With basement suites, you always have to be careful not to cause a nuisance to the person living below you. A loud tenant can also deny you the peace and comfort that you cherish in a home. On the other hand, living in a separate rental house is desirable but is not always feasible due to cost concerns. Garage suites eliminate all the above concerns. It not only safeguards your privacy but can add usable space to your facility allowing you to reserve your basement for other uses. A garage suite is also ideal for a household that doesn’t have a large debt load.
