Four-step Process from Conception to Building

Embarking on the journey to your dream garden suite is simpler than you think—just four steps stand between you and the realization of your vision. Let’s break down this exciting process that brings you closer to your dream space.

1. Feasibility
Discovering the feasibility of your dream garden suite begins with a meticulous examination of your property’s eligibility, a service we provide for free.

Understanding the specific bylaws governing your city is key, and we navigate the intricacies for you. From setback requirements to maximum footprints, we simplify the complexity. Should your property not align with bylaws, our minor variance service steps in, seeking the necessary approvals on your behalf.

2. Design
Tailoring your garden suite to reflect your unique style starts with a comprehensive design consultation. We work closely with you to capture the essence of your vision, both inside and out. Our design process involves crafting detailed exterior and interior plans, with revisions continuing until your space is perfect.

3. Permitting
Navigating the world of building permits is our expertise. After finalizing your designs, we generate the technical and engineering drawings required for permit approval. We handle your interactions with city building departments, ensuring a smooth and hassle-free permitting process. Should you wish to build outside standard bylaws, our team manages the minor variance process seamlessly.

4. Building
Transforming your dream into reality requires the expertise of our vetted construction partners. We connect you with seasoned professionals, ensuring your garden suite is built on time and within budget. Benefit from a fully managed process, with our construction partners boasting extensive experience in custom home builds, major renovations, and garden suite construction.


Our commitment extends beyond construction, providing ongoing support throughout your journey. Achieving your dream garden suite is not just a goal; it’s a well-managed and inspiring process that we are here to guide you through every step of the way.
