Finding out that my mother-in-law had a debilitating disease that was going to affect her mobility was a difficult thing to process. However, my husband and I knew that we didn't want to put her in a nursing home if we could help it. Wanting her to maintain some independence, we talked with a local contractor about building a mother-in-law apartment off the mud room. That way, she had a single-story space that was wheelchair accessible and she still had easy access to the main house as well. I wanted to create this site to share our experience in case others may be facing a similar situation. I hope this information helps you to plan out space for your loved one with more confidence.
