While this is certainly a great option and available in many plans, this is not the only type of plan that falls into the category of mother-in-law suite floor plans. Any plan that has a large guest room and private bath connected to it can be considered an in-law suite plan. Some homes are spacious enough to allow the additional space to serve as a rental opportunity. This additional space may be labeled as a "guest room" or "maid's quarters," in addition to the designation of "in-law suite."Types of Mother-In-Law Suite PlansHouse plans with a mother-in-law suite can come in a variety of styles. Sometimes the additional space is on a separate level of the home, like a walkout basement or second story, providing additional privacy. The Butler Ridge is a great example of this.

Mother-in-Law Suite and House Plans View Description Hide Description One of the most versatile types of homes, house plans with in-law suites (also referred to as "mother-in-law suites") allow owners to accommodate a wide range of guests and living situations, without compromising any of the luxuries or conveniences that come with owning a home. As its name suggests, these house plans came about as a means for allowing the mother-in-law (or other relative) of a couple to move in with them while maintaining a high level of independence. In-law suites home plans typically begin with a standard multi-bedroom house plan for the main residence, which can appear in virtually any style. The suite exists as a separate yet attached unit to the main home floor plan, with the specific layout depending on the design for the rest of the building. Some in-law suites exist as a converted basement or bottom floor, with the main family area residing above it. Other floor plan layouts place the suite on the side of the home, typically connected via shared walls or a secondary access way into the main house plan. Regardless of the general house plan layout, In-Law Suites Home Plans usually include all of the standard amenities of a standalone unit, such as a dedicated bedroom separate from the living space or dining area. The accommodations in In-Law Suites Home Plans also include dedicated kitchens, which can range from a space-conscious kitchenette to a fully functioning area with its own stove and cooking area. This type of home plan also includes a dedicated bathroom within the floor plan of the suite, as well as a standalone entryway that leads straight outside rather than requiring the occupant to pass through the main part of the house plan to get into and out of the unit.
