Creating a guest suite within your home or an external home suite can be a great way to give long- and short-term visitors extra privacy, while keeping your home in your own style. Home suites typically have a bedroom with an en suite bathroom, sometimes with a kitchenette. They’re ideal for long-stay guests, lodgers or adult family members who require both care and independence. External home & guest suites are often popular as home offices, allowing the worker to maintain a work/life balance while still being close to home. OGC LTD will help you design and build an entertaining guest home suite – at an affordable price.
A guest suite can provide additional income and with a separate entrance, kitchenette and bathroom you will hardly know your guests are there. As families grow up, many home owners in Ottawa find that they have extra space. Rather than downsizing, creating a home suite can allow you to rent out part of your home while maintaining your peace and privacy. As the nation’s capital, Ottawa is a thriving holiday and business destination, so there are opportunities for short-term holiday lets and long-term residential lettings in many neighborhoods.

Building a guest suite inside the home can be as simple as creating an en suite for a bedroom or as complex as building a home extension complete with kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. Basement apartments are great
Guest suites within the home are ideal if you regularly host visitors, as they allow guests to begin their day without disturbing their hosts. They’re ideal for groups on different schedules or who require a measure of privacy – adult children visiting with their partners or bringing young grandchildren, for example.
Separated from the main building, external home suites allow home owners to make the best use of their land, without disturbing existing structures. They’re common where the existing building already has a good aspect – a view from the living room you love, a pleasantly sunny kitchen.
Guest suites which are separate from the home are ideal for long term guests, such as family visiting from overseas, staff or relatives requiring extra care. With separate entrances, they allow both groups to keep in touch while maintaining their independence. At OGC LTD we have the full range of professional skills, city permits and qualifications to create a solid, weather proof, external home suite, from foundations to roof tiles.
