Things to consider when building an in-law or nanny suite Tips to make multi-generation living work for everyone.
Protect yourself from fire

With a struggling economy and an unpredictable stock market, mixed generations are sharing their homes.  In-law suites are often created by converting a room in the house into a livable suite.

Tips to make it work for everyone:

·         Check your local zoning by-laws and get a building permit if needed.

·         Consider the future health and accessibility (stairs) of your in-laws.

·         Try to keep your space separate from their space to maintain each other’s privacy.

·         Install grab bars in washrooms, easy-open drawers, and ample lighting.

·         Install safety features (fire, smoke, and carbon monoxide detectors).

·         Install motion sensitive lights to reduce the risk of falling.

·         Install an intercom system so your in-laws can reach you in the event of an emergency.
