This family needed an in-law suite for their colonial style home in Hillsborough, New Jersey. The space over the garage was a perfect location for the bedroom suite. The project included a large bedroom with a sitting area, two closets, and a roomy, three-fixture bathroom. The new space has access from the existing hall and stairwell plus a rear entrance from the first floor deck below.
The access steps leading up to the suite had to come of the existing stairway landing. The placement of the rooms in the space also had to be done with consideration of the rear door and exterior stairs to land properly on the existing first floor deck.
The end result is a simple two room suite that is comfortable and private while providing convenient access to family and friends both inside and outside of the home. The high cost of adult care and housing make this project a wise investment. Plus, you cannot truly put a price on family unity. This suite, similar to many others, was designed with the flexibility to someday become a master bedroom suite for the present of future homeowners. This versatility of use has prompted us to stop using the term in-law suite. Today we prefer to call this type of project as a lifestyle suite instead.
The project was designed and developed by the Design Build Planners. The craftsmanship was from Mark of Excellence.
