the garage suite build process

There are many angles to consider when starting a garden or garage suite project. Here are a few things we have learned and answers to questions we commonly field. 

How much will this cost me?

An average garage suite costs around $160,000. Some projects come in lower, some higher. There are many variables to consider, and we can walk you through them. Eight Block will offer a free estimate for your specific project.  

Can I add a second storey to my existing garage?

Usually not. It typically ends up being less cost-effective to do so. We advocate starting from scratch. It is less expensive in the long run, and we can guarantee the quality of the finished product. 

What's all this about Cornerstone Grants?

The City of Edmonton has a secondary-suite funding program called Cornerstone. We have built garage suites with the assistance of these grants and we'll make sure to pass along information on the program. 

If I hire Eight Block, what can I expect?

We are a full service design-build company, responsible for designing your structure, obtaining all necessary project permits, demolition of any existing structure and managing all new construction. We are committed to helping you understand the ins and outs of the whole process. 

We hope to hear from you.
