Building an In-Law Suite for Your Snowbird Parents

pexels-photo-259962Your parents love coming to visit sunny Florida from their northern home, and you enjoy hosting them; however, there’s simply not enough space for them to feel truly comfortable in your guest bedroom. Perhaps they stay at a hotel, which we all know can become costly. To resolve this space dilemma, consider building an in-law suite with the assistance of a dumpster rental.

What is an In-Law Suite?

An in-law suite is a separate space inside your home, or somewhere on your property, that includes a bedroom, sitting area, bathroom, and possibly a kitchenette, depending on personal preferences. If you can imagine turning an area of your home into a cozy studio apartment, you can imagine what your in-law suite might look like.

Converting Unused Rooms

Think about the rooms in your home that you rarely use, an extra bedroom, storage room, or large dining room that typically only gets used once or twice a year for holidays and special occasions. These are all good candidates for an in-law suite conversion. Depending on their location, you could create sections using wall partitions and add doors to connect the suite to the rest of the home. Even in tight quarters, you can create a private nook that offers privacy.

Convert a Garage

Garages already have the basic framework to make excellent in-law suites, but they do require a remodel to bring them up to living code standards. First, you should insulate the walls from extreme heat and cold. If the floor is concrete, it needs to be replaced, and you also need to install heat, air conditioning, and proper lighting.

Build a New Addition

When there’s no extra space in your home, building may be your best option. This gives you the opportunity to be creative with design from the very beginning, choosing the right materials to build a private and perfectly customized suite that offers luxury and privacy.
