As our nation ages, such as "baby boomers", we like to keep close to family. But not to infringe on our families household independence. These units provide flexibility, privacy and independence while helping financially. They also serve any age experiencing limited mobility.
Some units can be attached to the main house, others can be built as a stand -alone unit.
