The prices of real estate in Edmonton can make it a challenge for first time homebuyers to afford single-family homes, and for owners of investment properties to generate positive cash flow from their investments.
A secondary suite, also known as a basement suite, mother-in-law suite, or granny suite, could be the perfect solution. It is a self-contained living space within a house or on the same property as a house, and it comes with a complete with a kitchen, bathroom, and sleeping areas. New homes owners can help balance their costs by collecting rent from this suite and investors can double their return when both units are rented out.
The City of Edmonton is one of progressive municipalities that allows secondary suites citywide for single detached homes. It even has a secondary suite grant program, which you can read more about by following the link that is listed under resource number 1 below. However, it is necessary to keep in mind that some factors such as size and width of the lot, the home layout and neighborhood may not allow a secondary suite to be approved.

Cinder is an electric contact grill. Its precision allows a cooking revolution. First, Cinder heats its cooking plates to the temperature that you want your steak. Then, the entire steak warms up to exactly that temperature, no more, no less. Two metal cooking surfaces contact and heat the top and bottom of the food. The air in the cooking chamber will heat up and warm the sides of the food, which are also cooked by radiant heat from the cooking surface.
Cinder's patent-pending algorithm can tell when your food is done by measuring power usage and several sensors. You tell Cinder what you want and it takes care of the cooking so you don't need to hover over the stove.
