This is also referred to as a mother in law suite or a father in law suite. Another popular trend is building a small guest house or apartment on your property and use it as rental income. Whatever your plans are, a guest house can solve some of the headaches of having someone intrude on your family while still being on the same property.
Most guest houses serve as small apartments and offer the same amenities as a regular house: kitchen, living room, dining room, bedroom, utility room, etc. The possibilities are completely up to you and can be customized to fit your budget. The first thing that needs to be addressed before considering building a guest house is; will your property allow a new guest house within the building setbacks. This can be found out by looking at your property survey. Easements, right of ways and flood plains will also need to be considered during the planning stages of guest house construction.
The design of the guest house can be a very exciting process. We can design the structure around exiting trees or nestle the new guest house behind landscaping and away from the main house. Building materials can be of any sort, although some Home Owner’s Associations (HOA) require that we use the same materials that are on the existing main house.
