Connected or Close
There are two main options for an in-law suite – it can either be directly connected to your existing house (likely with a separate entrance), or it can be a detached building. First, you’ll need to take a look at your current house and property to determine what is going to be possible given the space you have available. Is there even room for another stand-alone structure? Where would you add on to the existing house if you went that direction? You can start thinking about these questions on your own, and you should also feel welcome to call Village Construction to discuss the project more specifically.
Following the Rules
Most likely, there are going to be rules in place where you live regarding what type of in-law suite is going to be allowed. You will have to obtain permits for the work you decide to have completed, so plenty of advance planning needs to be completed to make sure what you want to do is actually allowed under the law in your area. Not surprisingly, this is another task that can be made easier with help from Village Construction. We have decades of experience and know how to review the laws that apply to your property to make sure everything will be approved in the end.
A Big Project Requires a Great Team
This is certainly not the kind of project that you want to trust to an unproven or inexperienced construction team. Whether you choose to build an attachment to your home or a separate structure, you’ll need to be sure that the money you invest in the project will be well-spent in the end. Call Village Construction today for more information and to request a free estimate for the job you’ve got in mind.
Our clients required a remodeled first floor, with the addition of a mother in law suite and a more open concept. The clients had a desired cost range from $125,000.00 to $150,000.00. The client's kitchen was small and outdated, with no available eating space. There was insufficient lighting and outdated trim throughout the first floor. The flooring was in noticably bad shape throughout the house. The family also requested a mother-in-law suite added to the first floor.
We solved these problems with a 690 sq. ft addition and a remodel of the first floor. We fully remodeled the kitchen, adding a peninsula and breakfast bar. We opened up the existing family room to add more space and create a more modern, open concept room. We were able to add a mother in law suite with a full bath, and a laundry room to the first floor. Finally, we installed new flooring and trim throughout the entire first floor with painted doors, casing, and base. These renovations completely redefined the first floor of the home and made it a more modern, open living space.
