WINSTON HEIGHTS BACKYARD SUITE: FEATURES

  • One Bedroom + Den

  • Three-Car Garage

  • 625 Square Feet Upstairs

  • 73 Square Feet Entrance

  • Custom Work/Live Floorplan

  • Internal Stair Access

  • Upgraded Window Package

  • Custom Interior Selections

  • 6-Inch Smartboard

  • Custom MDF Shelving

Our Winston Heights backyard suite project began as a “Benjamin” package with 572 square feet of upstairs living space. Looking for more square footage to add an office/flex space, our client requested we expand the size of the living area by more than 50 square feet to accommodate a den area.

Other additional upgrades requested by our client include (but are not limited to):

  • Extended garage
  • Additional kitchen countertop and cabinetry
  • Custom MDF shelving
  • Extra windows

This particular project has a power pole located on the back corner in the alley, near the lot and space where the garage suite is to be built. Upon submission of the development permit, we found out that Enmax had changed its rules around power pole clearances; therefore, we were required to change the design of the suite to meet the new regulations which we were happy to do for no additional cost.

Today, the development permit is complete for this backyard suite project in Winston Heights/Mountview, and we are well on our way to beginning construction soon!

If you’re looking to build a backyard suite in Winston Heights or another community in Calgary, it’s best to know what your limits are before applying for permits. That way, you won’t lose precious time when waiting on the City and Enmax to review and approve your submissions.

Or, you can leave it up to the experts to get the job done for you! Learn more about our services!

WINSTON HEIGHTS/MOUNTVIEW COMMUNITY

Winston Heights/Mountview is a hidden gem of a community found in Calgary’s northeast quadrant, but within the City Centre district. Home to deep and wide lots, many properties in the area are ideal for backyard suite construction.

Residents have quick and easy access to main city routes via Edmonton Trail and the Trans Canada Highway. Meanwhile, the ravine and bike pathways running along Deerfoot Trail to the east of the community provide ample opportunities for outdoor leisure and recreation throughout the year. Enjoy walkability to Bridgeland, downtown, Confederation Park, and other close by destinations in the inner city.

Homeowners enjoy the benefits of an inner city lifestyle, and as a result, many tend to stay for the long term. Some homes in the area utilize the same construction as large suburban properties, setting the neighbourhood apart from the rest.

Winston Heights/Mountview residents may or may not have a power pole on the same side of the alley as their home which may complicate building a backyard suite on the lot. If you’re thinking of building a carriage house or garage suite but are unsure about the utility connections, contact us anytime and we will be happy to evaluate them for you!

WHY BUILD A GARAGE SUITE IN WINSTON HEIGHTS?

  1. Deep and wide lots make large garage suite builds possible
  2. Close to downtown and easy access to main highways
  3. Quick and convenient access to restaurants, shops and services
  4. Walkability with nearby parks and pathways
  5. Excellent resale potential, with added value by the suite
