Mother In Law and Guest Suites
Architects use several key terms to describe single family home plans designed to accommodate multi generational living: in law suite plans, mother in law suite plans, guest suite plans, two master plans, and dual living plans.
Each plan category includes private areas for independent living such as small kitchenettes, private bathrooms, multiple living areas or sitting rooms, and private entrances.
What's the difference between house plans with two master bedrooms versus a guest suite? Size. Most often, a second master suite will include an en suite bathroom, large bedroom, private sitting room or alcove area, and walk in closet. A guest suite may or may not have a private bathroom - sometimes the suite shares a hallway bathroom called a "buddy bath" with two entrances (one from the bedroom and one from the hallway).
