Location, Location, Location
There is no shortage of quiet and picturesque locations throughout Alberta perfect for a cabin or a cottage. In fact, there are currently over three thousand vacant lots for sale across the province. Some of the most popular spots are the waterfront communities of Sylvan Lake and Lake Newell, the mountain town of Canmore, and the more northerly town of Hinton, which is situated on the doorstep of Jasper National Park. The area west of Edmonton, comprised of the communities of Wabamun Lake, Lac Ste. Anne, and Lake Isle are particularly ideal for those seeking affordable lakefront plots.

Getting All Your Papers in Order
When looking for cabins and cottages, it is important to make sure that you are looking at structures on private rather than on Crown land. As reported by the Edmonton Journal, structures on Crown land can be subject to a provincial order for removal and are considered to be unauthorized. When building on private land, you also need to make sure that you obtain all of the necessary building permits, even if your cabin is situated remotely. Any new additions or accessory buildings to an existing structure will require a permit as well.
Save yourself any potential trouble by making sure you’ve got all of the right permits and papers before buying or building a new vacation property.
Protecting Your Investment
Once your papers are all in order, the next step to protecting your investment is to make sure the roof is in good repair. Professional roof repair in Edmonton may be needed to ensure that the roof does a good job of keeping out air and moisture. You may also choose to have a brand new roof installed.
