When considering building your new custom home perfectly tailored to your needs, one of the first questions will be the size. What is the space that best accommodates your family’s current and future needs. In this blog, we are going to explore for great options to decide what Calgary custom home is best for you.
A Single Home Custom Made for You
Whether it is an infill (built in an established community) or a new development. A single home brings the opportunity to have tons of landscaping options and green spaces. Depending on the lot size and location you can accommodate a bungalow, 2-storey or 3-storey home. In a single family home, there are no shared walls with neighbors and you can decide if your garage is attached or detached. A single custom home will definitely have more square footage than a duplex, so that translates into more storage as well, and it will be located in the city.
If you are building a single custom home in Calgary and want to add more living space to accommodate relatives or for rental income, adding a garage suite or laneway home is also a good option to consider. Learn more about it here.
