We Build Beautiful Garden Suites in Edmonton

While garden suites were once considered distinct from garage suites, the City of Edmonton has decided to consider them inclusively under the umbrella of “garden suites.” In general, garden suites are approximately the size of an apartment, complete with a sleeping space, living area, kitchen, and bathroom. Some garden suites will include a garage, or garage space, while others will not. In an attempt to provide residents with affordable housing options and to minimize the impact of a growing population, the City of Edmonton provides Cornerstone Grants, which are sanctioned under the Affordable Housing Plan. Should you choose to rent out your home addition to a low-income resident, or tenants for five years after the construction is complete, you could receive a grant of up to $20,000 to fund your project.


First, you should determine if your property is eligible for garden suite construction. If it is, we’ll work with you to get the project underway as quickly as possible! The main steps involved in your project will include:
  1. Planning
  2. Pre-Application
  3. Permit Application
  4. Application Review
  5. Application Approval
  6. Construction
  7. Inspection
  8. Occupancy Permit
