In-Law Solutions

Every custom home that The Phoenix Group builds has some sort of accommodation for “The In-laws” or the long-stay guest. Having a waterfront home in the Cayman Islands certainly makes you a magnet for the extended visitor, and that can be a great thing if you have planned properly for it. There are many solutions – let’s take a look at a few:

This lovely space, which sits atop a garage, has all the comforts of home.

Another garage-top layout shows excellent use of space and can double as an additional recreation space when no guests are around.

This space, which sits off the pool, works well for an aging parent as everything is ADA compliant.

400 square feet is all that is really required to create a comfortable long-term residence annexed to the main home. Add a separate door to the outside and the space can serve a live-in helper, a family member, or even be rented to help cover the household bills.

These two solutions provide the ultimate in privacy for both the stay-over guest and the host. Prefab units are available on the market so that an inexpensive in-law suite can be added at any point in the future if it is considered when planning the lot layout.
