Why should I build one?

Garden suites can favour everyone and bring many benefits to your community. They give opportunities for multi-generational living, can help with your mortgage and provide more affordable housing and inclusive design.

Some people choose to build garden suites in order to keep family members near by.  It can be a great option for keeping your parents or your children close, while still maintaining some privacy by ensuring everyone has their own space.

Alternatively, some aging empty nesters have decided to downsize into their own garden suite, and allow their children’s family to live nearby, in the main house.

As with any good infill project, it’s all about creating more flexible living options so every Edmontonian can choose the neighbourhood that suits them best.
