Mother-in-law cottage...to build or not to build?
We just moved into our new home in February! BIG YEH! Since that time, major changes have occurred and we are considering whether or not to build a small cottage for my mother-in-law on our property.
We have 3 acres and live in the county, with little or no building codes. We are restricted by covenants, which do not allow a mobile home. I post this for advice on whether or not to build a separate cottage or to build something that connects to our home. Has anyone built a mother-in-law suite or cottage on their property. I would love some ideas/plans/pictures. (We also considered closing in the garage, but my MIL is still extremely active and I think we BOTH need our own kitchens.)
