Garden suites tie into the main house services, just like a laneway suite. This includes gas, hydro, water and sewage.
There may be instances where additional services will have to be brought in from the street. For example, properties with multiple units may not have enough available power to facilitate a garden suite. In this case, a new line will have to be drawn from the street. This can increase the overall cost of your garden suite project.
It is best to have your contractor review the state of your current services to avoid unexpected costs.
