Consider Adding An In-Law Suite onto Your Future Home

Do you have an elderly parent that you would like to care for but still want your own privacy and theirs? Consider our Malvern Model. The Malvern is a modest two-story model and consists of 2223 sq. ft. The in-law suite will have their own on suite with master bath, living and dining area and kitchenette. You will be able to access the main living area in the house by way of the laundry/mud room, which both parties have ample access to.

The resale aspect of a home with an In-Law Suite is that there is more to offer your potential buyer when it comes time to sell your home. Not only can an In-Law Suite be the new home to your aging parents, it could be a stepping stone to adulthood for older teenagers in your home.

There are multiple uses for an In-Law Suite. The possibilities are endless. What about having a main floor master bedroom retreat for the sole owner of the property, a place for just you to have as a retreat. There are times when one floor living is a must, after an illness, surgery, or an accident. One never knows where the road of life leads, so why not make your in-laws suite ADA compliant as well. Later on in life that same area can then be utilized for aging parents or for a teenager who is just not quite ready to be out on their own.

There are municipalities that do have restrictions in regards to a single-family dwelling with two functioning kitchens. This is something that needs to be worked through, but be sure to check first with your municipality.

Check out our plans that have already incorporated an In-Laws Suite or peak at the Malvern Model and incorporate the In-laws suite in the plan that would better suit your needs.
