I don't know why, but there just aren’t many 4 bedroom houses in Calgary.
When I say '4 bedrooms', I’m talking about 4 above grade bedrooms. Or 4 bedrooms all on the same floor.
The cynical part of me likes to imagine how this decision was made...
An innovative home builder probably looked at census data for 39 seconds, swiveled his chair to ask one of the ‘hammer swinging guys’ how much an extra bedroom costs to build, and decided it wasn’t worth the money/effort to cater to families with more than two children.
Other builders, scared that their homes wouldn’t look exactly the same as the innovator, immediately burned all their designs of 4 bedroom homes.
There are just so few 4 bedroom homes in Calgary that this is the only explanation I can come up with.
