Samantha Fraser is a student at The University of Calgary. She rents this attic suite inside a Mission house for $1,000 per month, which includes her utilities. It is one of four separate units in the house, where a total of eight people live.
Her space also includes a full kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and living area. It’s about 500 sq feet and she found it listed on Kijiji. “It’s definitely a unique space and it goes to show you really can make any space your own,” she says, adding that she enjoys the intimacy of her small living area.
She says that there is a strong sense of camaraderie in the house. “Things like yard work and snow removal become communal,” Fraser says. “It’s nice to know that things are taken care of.”
