In-Law Suite

The In-Law Suite Addition: Growing in Popularity

You may not use an In-Law Suite for an aging parent at all. Perhaps you want to have a live-in nanny or au pair, a secondary suite, apartment, cottage housing, or multigenerational unit. The In-Law Suite is a great solution.

What Qualifies as an In-Law Suite?

Unlike a guest bedroom, an in-law suite is intended for a long-term stay. They can be as small as 300 sq. ft. and as large as a nice-sized apartment. It might be simply a bedroom and private bath, or more like an apartment. The addition may be attached to your existing home, or could be a separate building. It all depends on what type of space you have available on your property, and your HOA rules or local zoning laws.

Know Your Local Regulations

We can help you navigate the local regulations as they apply to an in-law suite addition. We can draw up in-law suite plans and attend meetings with you, as well as get all the appropriate permits. It’s important that you work with an experienced and licensed home builder when you want to build any home addition. We know the codes and zoning laws for the area.

In-Law Suites Add Value to Your Home

In the event you eventually decide to sell your home, having a first-floor in-law suite or separate cottage can add tremendous value. Multigenerational living is on the rise, and buyers are willing to pay a premium to get a home that fits their needs without making big changes themselves. Very few homes with in-law suites are ever on the market at the same time.
