In-Law Suite Additions

The modern family unit sometimes consists of three generations living under the same roof. In other situations, college graduates move back home to reside with their parents upon completing their studies.

Family circumstances like these may mean you need additional living space to ensure everyone has ample room and privacy. When moving to a more spacious residence is not an option for financial or practical reasons, adding an in-law suite to an existing home can be a viable and cost-effective alternative.

What Are In-Law Suite Additions?

An in-law suite, also known as a mother-in-law suite addition, is a private living space constructed on a primary property. This structure may be an addition built onto the house or a separate, stand-alone dwelling located elsewhere on the grounds. They typically have separate entrances, en suite bathrooms and other amenities to ensure occupants are comfortable in their living space and have adequate privacy.

Ideal Construction & Remodeling Offers In-Law Suite Services in Northern Virginia and Beyond

If you live in Washington, D.C., the city’s Maryland suburbs or Northern Virginia, Ideal Construction & Remodeling can design and build an attractive, functional in-law suite addition that fits your family’s unique lifestyle requirements. We offer an assortment of floor plans, helping us find the best options to meet your needs. We can also collaborate with you to create a custom, personalized living space that incorporates your ideas and concepts.

Do you have an underutilized room, such as an unfinished basement, attic or garage? We can renovate these existing spaces and transform them into fully functional in-law suites, preventing the need for a more extensive construction project.

Experience the Numerous Benefits of In-Law Suite Additions

Reasons to consider building an in-law suite on your property include:

  • Practicality: These suites offer a practical and affordable solution for everyone. Young adults or elderly grandparents won’t need to bear the expense of renting or purchasing a home. These arrangements may also promote familial bonding across multiple generations.
  • More privacy: All family members can enjoy their own living spaces and maintain independent lifestyles. This freedom relieves the tension that often exists when living in close quarters.
  • Increased property value: A home addition or remodeling project typically boosts a home’s resale price. You can get a larger return on investment if you decide to sell, and the property will be more attractive to other multigenerational families.

We’ll Handle Every Step of Your Project

Ideal Construction & Remodeling is a design-build firm that can help you plan your in-law suite addition and manage all the construction aspects. You’ll have the advantage of working with one point of contact during every project phase. This approach improves communication and collaboration and makes us fully accountable for the outcome. You can skip the added effort of hiring separate contractors for each step.
