As of April 10th 2015, we have finally broken ground on the new duplex. This will be my own personal residence, and also an income property as I can rent or sell the secondary duplex unit. It's a smart and efficient design that's perfect for urban infill type homes, where the incentive is often to maximize space, and resale value. A few of these compact narrow lot front-to-back duplexes already exist in Edmonton, but this particular design provides a fresh modern appearance, and is packed with plenty of features including 3 bedrooms in total, 3 bathrooms, a master suite with it's own full bathroom and walk-in closet, kitchen / dining with pantry, a generous 13' x 13' living room, a basement, and it provides this all within a svelte 1100 square-foot floor area. As an affordable investment property, it's hard to beat! I stand to profit greatly from the practical innovation of this design, and I can help you do the same. Anu Homes is the builder of this project (see their link for more info).
|That's me breaking ground, or at least preforming the 'ceremonial version' of it.|
|This is what it will look like.|
|And this is the basic plan of how it works.|
