As the population ages, more families will become caretakers for elderly parents or relatives. These house plans with in-law suites offer the needed space (often on the first floor, ideal for a person with limited mobility). Of course, in-law suites can be used by buyers in many different situations, from owners who simply want comfortable guest accommodations to those with nannies or live-in caretakers. The suites themselves range from a simple bedroom and bathroom to more elaborate apartments suitable for semi-independent living (older children, perhaps returned from college and looking for a job, will especially appreciate the latter type). Some of these suites are even detached for the home for greater privacy. Either way, a house plan with an in-law suite offers outstanding versatility for the future. Adding onto an existing home?
