Sometimes, family members with limited ability are given few living options, and living at home is rarely one of them. So, many people resort to moving to an assisted living facility, where they may be assured that relatives are adequately taken care of. However, these facilities are not always ideal and might trigger emotional distress if there is any employee misconduct regarding patient care. Solution? In-law suites are lavish for any family members who desire independence and the safety of their family and house. Keep reading to learn if you should build one with your custom home.
What is an In-Law Suite?
In-law suites are typically separate areas of the home – attached or unattached- that are great for living. They usually come with their bedroom, bathroom, living room, and kitchen. Fortunately, it provides a distinct sense of privacy. This is because it isn’t directly connected to the rest of the home, even though it’s on the same property. Also, it feels like an apartment because of its functionality. As a result, this makes it desirable for someone who wishes to live safely and comfortably in their custom home despite needing accessibility assistance.
Considerations Before Adding It To the Floor Plan
There is also the chance of renting out the space. In addition, renting out an area of your custom home means it complies with your area’s zoning restrictions. Of course, there is nothing wrong with housing a family member free of charge. Plus, you should consider your home’s value; is there enough room? Can you still have a spacious yard, even with the in-law suite addition? So, always make sure to check before you build.
