The In-Law Suite Revolution
Many of our visitors have inquired about In-law suites, and we have deliberated long and hard over the issue. We have searched our house plans for months now attempting to find the answer to the In-law dilemma. No personal issues here, just where to house them when they, or any other parents, are joining or visiting your home. Our requests have come from people of all walks of life, rich and poor, searching for large and small houses. However, they have one similarity: they each love their parents and want a respectable place for them to live. It’s a second master bedroom for some and a completely separate apartment for others. We intend to provide you with home plans that will meet your needs and your parents’ Read more

Yesterday's fish stays fresh when kept in a refrigerator, but what can be done about visitors?     There aren't many things in life that are as wearisome and stressful as the unexpected long-term houseguest. It may be a friend who is down on his luck, a son who's taking a break from his education, or even your in-laws; whatever the situation may be, we often find ourselves in need of some extra living space.

The In-Law Suite: Say Hello to a Home-within-the-Home
The In-Law Suite: Welcome to a Home-Within-the-Home   On an upswing for a number of years, in-law suites have redefined the idea of living together for the modern family. These “homes-within-the-home” are stylish accommodations for in-laws, returning children, or overnight/weekend guests. And, they come in all shapes and sizes - from a garage studio apartment, to a first floor master bedroom, a refinished basement, or a tiny cottage on the grounds of the primary residence.          A spacious one-bedroom garage apartment is an attractive option as a guest house or suite for an adult child. It features a full bathroom, kitchen and living room.  http://www.theplancollection Read more
