A Garage Suite, often referred to as a Laneway Home, is a separate living space above the garage. With separate access to the living space, the resident will have privacy from the main home. Garage suites are typically 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom residential units with an open concept living room / dining room / kitchen. There will be full laundry facilities as well as storage in the unit. Garage suites do not have their own title and are built on the rear portion of the property, generally very close to the alleyway.
Building a garage suite or laneway home is a fantastic means to generate additional revenue, have the convenience of extended family live close by, while still maintaining the privacy of the primary dwelling. It is a great opportunity to build a new garage, obtain potential monthly revenue, all without the disruption of a renovation or new build of the primary property. The City of Edmonton supports garage suites as a means to provide affordable rental housing.
