The owners decided that they didn't 'need' their former garage and so they turned into a fully equipped in-law suite. The suite is just off of the family room. You enter into the kitchenette, which has a good number of cabinets and a sink. The room to the right is a private bath with shower and the room to the left is a private bedroom. It feels like a private living space. If they wanted to, they probably could have even created a private entrance into the home. But that could be done some time down the road by anyone.
When one creates an in-law suite/main level bedroom, he/she really appreciates having a powder room in the main living area of the home. Not all model homes have a main level powder room. This home does. So, guests don't have to go through the in-law suite in order to wash up. Real privacy. The owners were also fortunate to have a garage space that could be converted into a full equipped in-law suite. Many home owners would have to put an addition on their home to accomplish this. An addition was an option with this home as it is on a huge lot. However,
re-purposing the space saved the owners a lot of money and from the outside, you can barely tell that their used to be a garage. The home kept its exterior integrity if you will.
Below are some pictures of the renovation:
Kitchenette in the in-law suite, with refridgerator, sink, cabinets, space for microwave
and window for daylight.
Private bedroom in the in-law suite, with closet space, room for desk and natural light.
