How Can I Get Involved?

Accessory suites are self-contained living units that are secondary to the primary residence on a single-family lot. They come in various forms, including basement apartments, converted garages, separate cottages, or additions to existing structures. These units typically have their own entrance, kitchen, bathroom, and living space, providing autonomy and privacy to their occupants.

Depending on the usage/location, and your geographic region, they go by many names, including:

  • Additional Residental Units (ARU)
  • Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU)
  • Secondary Suites
  • Laneway Suites
  • Laneway Homes
  • Accessory Apartments
  • Basement Suites
  • Garden Suites
  • Granny Suites
  • Granny Flats
  • Garage Conversions
  • and many more!

The versatility of accessory suites makes them beneficial to various demographics. For homeowners, they offer an opportunity for additional rental income, increased property value, and multi-generational living arrangements.

Renters (including adult children) benefit from access to affordable housing options in desirable neighbourhoods, often with proximity to amenities and transportation hubs. Additionally, accessory suites can serve as a solution for aging in place, allowing seniors to maintain independence while staying close to family members.

Home Suite Home is both an HGTV-inspired video series and an informational platform that explores the emerging accessory suite market. With current projects as a backdrop, each episode provides viewers with inspiration and information and, as part of a series, gives a realistic, comprehensive overview of the process of building an ADU.

In addition to inspiring home tours and design considerations, Home Suite Home deep-dives into the financial aspects and social benefits involved in undertaking an ADU build and acts as a bridge between homeowners and the preferred suppliers and capital required to build or renovate.

Right here! Each episode will be available at HomeSuiteHome.co as well as on YouTube.
