Common Aspects and Considerations

Purpose: Side entrances offer convenient access to specific areas of the house, such as the basement and in particular a separate suite for rental or in-laws without the need to go through the main entrance.

Design: Side entrances can vary in design depending on the architectural style of the house. They can be simple doors leading directly into a room or may have an entryway or mudroom area with storage space for coats, shoes, or other outdoor gear.

Privacy and Security: Side entrances may provide an added layer of privacy, especially if the main entrance faces a busy street or neighbors. However, it's important to consider security measures such as locks, lighting, and possibly an alarm system to ensure the safety of the home.

Functionality: Side entrances are used for providing a separate access point for tenants or guests who have their own living space within the house.

Aesthetics: When designing or modifying a side entrance, homeowners may consider integrating it seamlessly into the overall design of the house, matching materials, colors, and architectural elements to maintain a cohesive appearance.

Permits and Regulations: In the metro Edmonton area you would be advised to check local building codes and regulations. You will need to obtain permits or adhere to specific requirements when creating or modifying a side entrance. It's advisable to consult with your REALTOR® on zoning and to double check with local authorities or a professional contractor to ensure compliance with any necessary regulations.
