Mother-in-law Suite Remodel in Boulder

Exterior of a Mother-in-law suite

We’re not quite sure where the name ‘mother-in-law’ suite came from, but what we are sure about is the value and convenience such a suite can add to your home. Whether you call it a mother-in-law suite or a secondary suite, a granny flat or an accessory dwelling unit (ADU), if you’re considering a home remodel with the addition of an extra dwelling on your property, get in touch with your local Boulder Remodeling Consultant for ideas, advice, and information on maximising your build.

And, once construction begins, they’ll oversee it all, acting as your single point of contact throughout the process.

It's for these reasons – and many more – that homeowners embarking on a home remodel project choose Refresh Renovations.

What is the best layout for a mother-in-law suite?

The key to a successful design of a backyard mother-in-law suite is a great layout. When looking over mother-in-law suite plans, make sure you account for the essentials – cooking and dining areas (open plan works best for these), living, bathroom, and bedroom. Clever use of space will also ensure there’s plenty of room for storage.

For many homeowners, the main reason for adding a mother-in-law suite to their house is to provide a living arrangement for an elderly or ageing relative. Therefore, give careful consideration of the layout to ensure it doesn’t impinge on an occupant’s accessibility.

What are the requirements for building a mother-in-law suite in Boulder?

If you’re looking to add to your home with a mother-in-law suite in Boulder, you will be subject to use standards and you’ll require building permit approval in a number of the city’s zoning districts.

Fortunately, to navigate the complexities of such paperwork, you’ll have the help of your local Boulder Remodeling Consultant who will manage the document and application for you.

What mother-in-law suite design services do Refresh Renovations provide in Boulder?

Adding a mother-in-law suite to your house comes with all of the elements of building a new home – foundations need to be laid, building needs to commence, power and electricity needs to be installed. Therefore you’ll need a variety of tradespeople on the job.

How much does a mother-in-law suite cost to build in Boulder?

The cost of building a mother-in-law suite depends on things such as:

  • Size: how big is your mother-in-law suite going to be?
  • Services: how close to existing services is your mother-in-law suite going to be? Or will your project require additional plumbing, drainage, and electricity meters to be installed?
  • Materials: are you building a functional yet stylish mother-in-law suite or a high-end luxury apartment in your backyard? The materials and finish you choose will contribute to the cost.

Every mother-in-law suite comes at a cost but that differs between homeowners. That’s why, at Refresh, we’re committed to providing you with a fixed quote accurate to your project based on the information you’ve provided and discussed with your Remodeling Consultant.

Your Style,
Your Budget,
Our Expertise

Refresh®’s process supports a bespoke design and build: a renovation tailored to your lifestyle requirements and taste. Your local Granny Flat renovation consultant will manage every aspect for you - working to keep everything on track.

Step 1

Briefing / Initial Consultation

The first thing your Granny Flat renovation consultant will want to know is what it is that you want to achieve through your home renovation. In this initial consultation, you can throw all of your ideas on the table - your consultant will then tailor them to your property and budget.

Step 2

Concept and Feasibility

With a clear understanding of your renovation goals, your Granny Flat consultant can arrange for an architectural concept to be drawn up. This allows your Granny Flat consultant to assess whether or not your ideas are feasible, and allows you to point out any changes you would like in the design - before any work begins.

Step 3

Working Drawings and Costing

Next, working drawings will be developed. These will take into account the engineering, structural, design and aesthetic decisions you have made. If you would like to make any further changes, now is the time to do so. From there, your Granny Flat consultant will present you with a fixed-quote as well as a contract.

Step 4

Build / Construction Stage

Finally, you get to witness your project transition from the page to your property! Every aspect of the build will be managed for you, allowing you to carry on with your everyday life. Your Granny Flat consultant will do everything in their power to keep your project on schedule so that it can be completed within a set timeframe and budget.

Step 5

Your Finished Renovation

The final stage is for your local Granny Flat consultant to ensure that all Council documentation is completed and you have the necessary Code of Compliance documentation. Congratulations – your renovation is complete!
