Summary: If you have extra space on your property, a guest house can be a great way to help your family members out and even give you a bit of side income.
Opening your house up to guests when they are in the area can give family and friends a convenient place to stay during their visit. Furnishing a spare bedroom or making space in your television room can be a viable option.
However, if you are limited on space in your house, have extra space in your backyard, and have the money to spare, then constructing a small house for guests to stay could also be something doable.
Avoiding Retirement Homes
If you find yourself in a position where your parents do not need to live in a retirement home but do require some assistance here and there, then building a guest house could be a smart move. Retirement homes can be quite expensive, because guests need to pay for everything from supervision to the property. If this is something your parents do not need, then you could save money by having them live nearby.
The guest house can give your parents some added privacy and give you the peace of mind of knowing that they are right next door in case something goes wrong and they need your help.
When you have family and friends visiting they can enjoy having access to a small guest house to sleep and bathe in. On the other hand, you can choose to rent the property out using a number of different short-term rental services. Tourists or travelers who need a place to stay for a week could get the local experience by staying in the guest house. Running a ‘bed and breakfast’ style establishment could give you some income on the side and help you pay off the expenses you invested into the project.
