Are the kids giving you a hard time about going outside and getting some exercise? Your new basement makes sure that they’ll have no more excuses. Whether it’s table tennis, futsal, mini soccer, or a wondrous playground of toys, anything to keep the children away from their screens.
  2. Bachelor’s Den: Have a video game den for your teenager and perhaps a bedroom and shower to give you the extra room in the house where people can go to relax after a hard day’s work. After all, isn’t that what makes your home home?
  3. Extra Living for All Purposes: Your basement can be a full stand-alone apartment underneath your home for guests or family members coming to visit but even more importantly, a way to earn some easy money.


Second Suites – Investing in the Future


Second suites are self-contained living units that come with a private kitchen, bathroom, and sleeping areas included inside of detached, semi-detached, and linked housing dwellings.


As one of the easiest ways to generate extra income through legal rentals. These require you to get a building permit from your municipality by filling out construction drawings and supporting documents to your municipality which permit you to rent out your basement to passerby.


Whether it be a foreign exchange student coming to study at a post-secondary institution or even Airbnb, second suites can easily hand you an extra couple hundred or thousand dollars! This is not to mention that finished basements also have a high return on investment by significantly increasing the market value of your property.
