Custom Designed and Crafted - Infill Home Builder in Edmonton
Infill home building consists of redeveloping an old parcel of land or home to a new one. Basically, we tear down an old house and proceed to build a new one. The perks of this is that you get a custom designed project in the mature and beautiful parts of the city. Predominantly, most infills are done in the heart of Edmonton. As infill home builders, we focus on architecturally blending newly designed homes with the surrounding and landscape of the lot. This creates a custom home surrounded by beautiful trees and a serene environment.
At Poetry homes, this is our focus.
We build in all of the areas in Edmonton and surrounding and help match people with locations they desire for their custom home. Our goal is to find a lot that fits your families needs and execute the project on time and on budget.
Homes we have built, and homes that can be built in Edmonton
Dependent on the type of zoning your home resides on and the lot size, there are many options for the style and size of your project. The most common infills in the city are:
Probably the most common infill in Edmonton. A bungalow can be built on any residential lot, with most layouts acceptable. This is the easiest infill, dependent on architectural guidelines and such, to get to build phase.
2 Two Story Attached
Just as common as a bungalow home, a two story attached can be built on most lots. There are very few conditions in which a two story home cannot be built in Edmonton
2 Story Detached
Like above, two story detached homes can be built on most lots in Edmonton. When there is a back alley with neighbouring homes having detached garages, this is the style of home you are limited to. However, the option of applying for a variance can allow you to have a 2 story attached if the city approves it.
Duplexes can be constructed on as little as 33ft wide lots. Doing this will limit you to a front-back duplex (where the home is staggered). Duplexes can be built on RF3 lots.
Subdivisions (2 Homes)
As an infill home builder in Edmonton and surrounding, subdivisions are becoming more common year after year. The requirements to subdivide a lot is that the front is 7.5 wide and the parcel of land is 250m2 after the subdivision is completed.
Garden or Garage Suites
Garage suites or garden suites are becoming more popular in the inner city. You have the option to convert your current garage into a livable place on ground level (garden) or above the garage (garage suite).
