If you’re looking for ways to add some additional space and value to your home, you have a lot of options. Depending on your budget, the amount of existing square footage and the size of your property—there is a lot to think about. You don’t always have to build up or build out to expand your nest, and you can literally think outside of the box. Considering the cost of adding on a bathroom and bedroom, it may be worth it to build a guest house.
No matter how you look at it, additions can be expensive and take quite a bit of time to complete. Guest houses are rising in popularity for many reasons, and home owners are opting to construct entirely new living spaces. Guest homes come with many advantages.
Living in a construction zone is difficult and building away from your existing home will alleviate some of that stress. You won’t have to breathe in dust all day or maneuver around piles of drywall to get through your home. In addition, you won’t have contractors in and out of your house while you’re trying to take a shower.
Having separate quarters to offer a mother-in-law or guest—who always wears out their welcome—is another perk. You won’t have to run into them as often and they can come and go as they please. A guest house could also be ideal for those who have elderly parents and want to look after them when the time comes.
An accessory dwelling unit will give you the space you need and increase the value of your property. If you are looking for a new home with additional space, check out our listings; some of our Tampa Bay area homes for sale may already have existing guest homes or detached mother-in-law suites.
