Just read a terrific article in the Post about a couple in Alexandria who put an addition on their home so their mom could move in with them. So I thought I would share how we did the same thing. Knowing my mom, in the next few years, will need more assistance than she is willing to admit, I had our home designed from scratch to include a 'Granny Suite' over a second garage and connected with an enclosed breezeway. Since the apartment (with full bath, family room, complete kitchen and small balcony) is on the second floor we also roughed-in for a future elevator. So whenever Mom is ready......so are we!
