With our aging population it has become more common to have home buyers put an in-law suite on the list of desired features for a home. According to Census data, about 9 percent of older Americans live with family.
There are really about three different in-law suite options in our area.
The first, and most often thought of, is in a finished basement. This is also the easiest to find.
Finished basements with a bedroom, bath and kitchen are fairly common and it isn't terribly expensive to finish a basement out this way.
