What Houzz contributors are saying:
5. Provide affordable (or, ahem, free) living space to a college-age kid living at home. With education-related expenses at an all-time high, and housing costs still soaring in many areas, if your kids have the opportunity to attend a local college and live at home while doing so, you might want to consider it. An in-law cottage on your property can provide grown children with an affordable home base while still maintaining some privacy and independence. And when they do move out, you can let the space evolve into something else entirely — perhaps one of the other ideas shared here.
