Introducing an innovative new approach to independent living!

Join us for a presentation by Garden Loft founder John L. Brown as he walks us through the concept behind Garden Loft and how it can work for you.

While the initial concept rose from a need to provide a space for seniors to age-in-place, it quickly became clear that these unique pre-fabricated buildings could offer creative solutions to a variety of situations, like providing housing options for adults who want to live independently, but still require modest support. Garden Loft living affords adults with differing abilities to live on their own with as much independence as they can safely manage.

Enhancing the functionality of your existing home by providing the additional space you and your family need, the interiors can be easily adapted to new uses as your situation changes. They feature open plan spaces, lots of natural light, and comfortable finishes that look great and function efficiently. Add to that a garden setting right outside the front door and Garden Loft provides the perfect balance of convenience and privacy. Garden Lofts are prefabricated in Calgary and can be delivered to residential lots throughout Alberta.
