A little backstory: I’m from California. When I decided to move to Michigan for graduate school my mom told me not to meet a guy, get married, and end up living in Michigan. And oops, that’s exactly what I did. Thankfully, my mom moved to Michigan about a year before I had Hudson. I’m an only child and couldn’t live without her close. And I’m lucky that she feels the same way about me. I grew up with my grandma living in the apartment above our garage, and loved having her right next door. So, when Jon and I decided to build our house, we asked my mom if she would want to join us and build her an in-law suite. And she said yes! Our original plan was to build her a separate little house behind ours…but due to strict laws in our desired area, we had to scrap that plan and build her house attached to ours. So we made it work. And today, I want to show you my mom’s super cute space! She designed it all herself and we both really love how it turned out. It compliments our house but still has it’s own style.
So that’s my mom’s space! So happy to have her close to me!
