Ottawa Basement Suites & Other Rental Units
If your basement is currently unfinished, our design team will take into consideration all of the necessary issues during the design phase, including insulation, waterproofing, electrical, flooring and heating. In terms of egress, or escape, if the basement already has an exit door to the outside, no egress window is required. But if the basement exit is located on the main floor, then an egress window must be in place so that the occupant can exit the basement through a window in case of fire.
We know that creating a well-equipped and code compliant secondary dwelling unit requires experience and proper design. Our expert team will guide you through the entire process and will renovate or retrofit the space to meet all requirements of the building code and the City of Ottawa. We will keep you involved and informed at every stage of the project.
Additional Income From
A Secondary Dwelling
All secondary dwelling units in Ottawa must conform to city regulations and meet building and fire codes. If your unit is not up to code, you will be liable for anything that happens to a tenant as a result of the unsafe conditions. Keep in mind that creating a secondary dwelling unit is more than just putting a bedroom in the basement. There are a variety of factors that must be taken into consideration when you are looking to legally create a secondary dwelling. Holland Homes and Renovations can walk you through the design and building phase for your secondary dwelling unit to ensure that everything is handled properly.
