Southwood is an established community in Calgary’s south district. Found just south of Chinook Centre and just north of South Centre Mall, the neighbourhood is made up of mostly single-family homes with wide lots ideal for backyard suite developments.
Many homeowners in Southwood stay for the long-term, meaning some homes are passed down from generation to generation. Backyard suites are an ideal way to provide elderly family members with more privacy while staying in the community they’ve grown to love.
Part of Southwood is built on an escarpment that slopes downward to the east, meaning that some homes are built on lots with varying elevations. While this may make utility connections more challenging, this isn’t anything that we can’t handle at Garage Suites Ltd.
Our current Southwood backyard suite required deep trenching due to an elevation different of nearly 10 feet from where utilities from the house would be connected to the new dwelling. We also were able to relocate a tree upon request by the homeowner, as it was a beautiful addition to the lush backyard our client nurtures and cares for.
