House Plans With In-Law Suites

Our society is becoming increasingly connected. This often means families coming together when parents or grandparents get older, caring for their own at home rather than relying on health care facilities. Mother-in-law suite floor plans help you make the most out of your space while encouraging family connection.Home plans with an in-law suite are often considered a necessity for those with aging parents or grandparents, but the benefits of these home plans extend beyond caring for the elderly. Not only will you have a space for mom or dad when the time comes, but you will have a spacious and private guest retreat - making out-of-town guests feel welcome in your home. Whether you have a loved one living with you or one who regularly visits, in-law suite house plans will provide the space you need with the privacy everyone craves.

Features of House Plans With In-Law Suites

When most people think of mother-in-law suite plans, they think of homes that have a full apartment - with kitchen and all - to provide a living space for an elderly relative. While this is certainly a great option and available in many plans, this is not the only type of plan that falls into the category of mother-in-law suite floor plans. Any plan that has a large guest room and private bath connected to it can be considered an in-law suite plan. Some homes are spacious enough to allow the additional space to serve as a rental opportunity. This additional space may be labeled as a "guest room" or "maid's quarters," in addition to the designation of "in-law suite."

Types of Mother-In-Law Suite Plans

House plans with a mother-in-law suite can come in a variety of styles. Sometimes the additional space is on a separate level of the home, like a walkout basement or second story, providing additional privacy. The Butler Ridge is a great example of this. This floor plan has a walkout basement with rec room and two bedrooms complete with private bath that could easily be converted into a full apartment with the help of our modifications team. This would provide a private space for guests, both short term and long term, without sacrificing the comfort of your family. At other times, the in-law suite is built into the main living area of the home. This can be seen in The Harrison, featuring five bedrooms, all of which have their own private bathroom. The bedroom near the main entrance to the home has a spacious walk-in closet and close access to the kitchen, making an ideal mother-in-law suite.
