Growing Demand for In-Law Suite Homes Raleigh

  
  
  

Multigenerational In-Law Suite Homes in Raleigh, NC

Growing Demand for In-Law Suite Homes

 

According to the Pew Research Center, the prevalence of the multi-generational American family household is growing - and has been for over 30 years. Here is what the national research center has to say: 

 - As of 2008, 49 million Americans In-law New Homes(16.1% of the total U.S. population) lived in a multi-generational household.

 - 23.2 million (or 47%) of these Americans are in households with two adult generations (parents or in-laws and adult children at least 25 years old).

 - 23.1 million (or 47%) are in households with three or more generations (grandparents, parents, and children). 

 - 2.8 million (or 6%) are in households with a grandparent and grandchild (but no parent).

The growth of the multi-generational family household has also lead to a greater demand for in-law suite new homes, which plan for additional adults to share living space on a temporary, semi-permanent, or permanent basis. 

Adding a full mother in law suite or apartment is a great way for multi-generational families to be comfortable – and a second suite can add value to your investment.

In-law suite home styles

In-Law Suite HomesThere are several types of in-law suite homes, designed to meet a variety of needs.

 - A bedroom with a full bath attached.

 - A bedroom with a sitting room near a full bath.

 - A small "apartment" which may have a bedroom and a living room/kitchenette combination.

 - A suite with a separate entrance.

Choosing which in-law suite to build - What is your budget?

Questions to ask before building a Multi Generational home

Adding a full attached bathroom to a downstairs bedroom can add some cost.  If your septic permit only allows a certain number of bedrooms - you may need to pay for an expanded system, which can add 25-75% to the septic cost. 

describe the imageAn additional full bath can add at least several thousand to the cost of the home, depending on whether you prefer tile and premium cabinets, or a more typical vinyl floor and fiberglass tub.  It's more typical to see a half bath downstairs. 

But the cost of adding a full suite with kitchenette can be significant.  There will be kitchen appliances, plumbing, countertops, lots of cabinets, and simply the cost of the additional square footage to consider.  And keep in mind, you may not get the cost of the kitchenette back when you go to sell your home - unless you are building at a luxury level and can market the rooms as a "Nanny living suite" - which is another great use for an In-Law Suite. 

Where do I go to find in-law suite floor plans?

Here are some places to start looking for home plans with different varieties of in-law suites:
