Bring Your Family Together With a Custom Luxury In-Law SuiteNovember 5th, 2019
Family members play a key role in the people we become as we transition into adulthood. Whether related by blood or by law, strong family bonds continue to guide and protect us throughout our lives. Once children become adults and have families of their own, that instinct to protect their own never goes away. In fact, many households are filled with close family members and relatives — especially as in-laws.
At Munz Construction, the leaders in kitchen remodeling in Bucks County, PA, we help families customize their homes to accommodate their elderly loved ones. With privacy intact, an in-law suite is perfect for creating separate livable spaces under the same roof.
What is an in-law suite?
An in-law suite is a separate and private space for aging parents, family members, or guests. It sometimes requires a completely new addition to the home, or can be designed from an existing space, such as an unused room, basement, or attic.
How much does it cost to build an in-law suite?
Building an in-law suite is significantly less than paying for a private room or nursing home elsewhere. The cost of building an in-law suite can vary, but can range anywhere from $40,000 to $125,000, according to Realtor.com. The location of your in-law suite, such as a garage, attic, basement, or unused room, can alter the cost of the project.
Converting an existing space, rather than building a whole new addition to your home, will also save you money. However, opting for a brand new addition certainly gives you more freedom of design. It is a good idea to consider involving those who will be staying in the new space to ensure you properly accommodate their needs and address their concerns, such as railings, staircases, temperature, and accessibility.
