Additions Case Studies: In-Law Suite in Ellicott City, MD

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2015 by Bob Weickgenannt


Living in Florida was wonderful but our clients missed seeing their daughter and her family.  They missed spending time with their adorable grandchildren.  With almost four acres of land to work with, they decided to bring the two families together. 

We encountered a few difficulties when working on this project.  Using a saw-tooth design, we were able to get the space we needed and stay within the building restriction lines.  With the tough winter weather, we encountered a few delays but had to meet the target date as our clients were moving up from the south and needed their new home to be move-in ready.  Making selections in person can be tough and most of their selections were made from five state's away.  


Topped with CertainTeed Shingles, this two-story brick and Hardie Plank addition is trimmed with dental moulding and blends seamlessly with the existing home.  BF Rich windows and slider allow ample light.  An Azek composite deck with stairs offers easy access to the backyard and the pool area. The open kitchen and family room are the heart of this home.  Armstrong laminate in white wash walnut unifies the rooms. 

In the kitchen, gorgeous Norcraft Copenhagen Maple cabinetry,  stylish granite countertops, and the Bellavinita Tile backsplash are stunning.  In the family room, two 30" wide niches were custom built on either side of the gas fireplace for pictures,  knick-knacks, and plants.  They add charm and distinction. 

The master bath and powder room both have Norcraft vanities topped with granite and under-mount sinks. The master bath is adorned with American Olean tile and a strip of Marazzi Crystal Stone offsets.  The niche, grab bar and corner seat all add convenience.  Moen and Kohler products were used throughout the remodel.

The suite offers many storage options - from the walk-in bedroom closet, cabinetry, attic and basement. 

Everything came together beautifully.  The quality of construction is exemplary and the addition is amazing.  We stayed within their budget and significantly increased the value of this property.  

Our clients are thrilled with their beautiful new in-law suite and very happy to be near their family once again.
