New Homes with Mother In-Law Suites   

NC custom home builders add private quarters for extended stays

Homes with inlaw suites are more popular than ever, as the economy shifts to a more condensed lifestyle. According to a  Coldwell Banker survey, financial reasons came up as the top answer homebuyers gave for wanting their new home to have a mother-in-law suite. 

Another big segment of homebuyers said that they wanted a home with an inlaw suite so that they would be able to take care of a family member in frail health. 

NC custom home builders are seeing additional reasons for mother in law suite floor plans, such as needing a private area for an adult child who has moved back home, or a friend who needs a place to stay for a while.

New homes with mother-in-law suites also offer flexibility for overnight guests, when that space is not otherwise occupied.  

Choosing a Mother-in-law Suite Floor Plan

Mother-in-law suite floor plans can be as versatile as your needs. 

The most common homes with inlaw suites that NC custom home builders are seeing is a first floor bedroom with attached bath and sitting room, or an even more economical first floor bedroom with attached bath.

Things to think about when building new homes with mother-in-law suites include:

- Should it include a sitting room?

- Is a kitchenette worth the extra expense?

- Is a private entrance to the mother-in-law suite necessary?

- Will you need a larger garage?

- What amenities will lead to greater resale value?
