May 2, 2020, Author: Karen Stanley

As you are making design choices on your new home, take a moment to think about 12 of many possible ways to use your optional guest house or casita. Many of our plans come with this option that our homebuyers love! Not only does it increase the space available to you, but it can be used to house guests comfortably, is extremely versatile, and ads unique value to your home.

Though the extra space can be used in unlimited ways, here are 12 ways we love!

  1. Guest quarters for family and friends – Entertain while giving you and your guests space to rest and unwind privately.
  2. Executive suite/home office – Finally, get the chance to separate work from home with a detached home office space. Find a few reasons we love home executive suites, here.

  3. Exercise room off of the house – No need to get in the car to go to the gym every day. Set up a home gym with the equipment you will actually use.
  4. Craft room – Unleash your creativity without having to clear it off the dining table before dinner. Another great way to use this space is for everything from jewelry making, to sewing, to scrapbooking.
  5. Airbnb – Find others need your space? Explore Airbnb options with your guest house that has its own bathroom.
  6. Personal Library – Create a space to unwind and read for leisure, learning, or a bit of both.
