free site evaluation for a garage suite in calgary
STEP ONE

Free Site Evaluation

Our project managers will come out to your property and perform a free site evaluation. You’ll have the opportunity to ask them questions while they evaluate the possibility of a backyard suite being built on your lot.

STEP TWO

Project Discussion

We collect information about a potential backyard suite for your property such as desired design and finishings, your overall budget and all other important details. We provide you with recommendations on what garage suite may be good for your property based off our standard plans in accordance with your requests thus far as well as the information gathered from our site evaluation. If you request a fully custom design that doesn’t look anything like our standard plans, we can do that too!

STEP THREE

Proposal Phase

We send you a proposal for your garage suite project. This document guarantees your requests for design and features are included and highlights a rough cost estimate for your project. The proposal phase is an iterative process that ensures you’re getting the backyard suite you want before moving forward. Once signed and an initial deposit has been made, we move forward with designing a black line floor plan and 3D renderings for your project.

STEP FOUR

Design Phase

Our architectural manager works closely with you to design a floor plan and 3D renderings for your project. This is an iterative process which ensures you’re completely satisfied with our product – confirmed with your signature after each design consultation session – before moving ahead to acquire permits for your project.

STEP FIVE

Construction Consultation

We present you with a sheet detailing our standard specifications. If any upgrades are made to the standard specs, we combine them with the final architectural design-build package to accurately price your garage suite project. If no major changes have been made to the architectural design-build package outside of your initial requests,, this should fall within our original rough cost estimate for your project. Construction consultation is an on-going process throughout the permitting stages as well.

STEP SIX

Development Permit

Once you have signed off on the final design package, we submit your plans to the city for a development permit. This can take up to 3 months or more to receive back. If your DP requires any changes to the design to be approved, we guarantee to make these for you free of charge as part of our all-inclusive service.

STEP SEVEN

Building Permit

Once we have our development permit approved, we can move forward with applying for a building permit. This can take up to two weeks or more to receive back.

STEP EIGHT

Construction Phase

Now comes the fun part! Watching your backyard suite come to life will take anywhere from three to six months depending on existing site challenges and weather conditions. We will do our absolute best to accommodate your needs during this time as we will be consistently working on your property.
