Share Article

Moss Building and Design, a remodeling company located in Chantilly, VA, is recognized in the Washington Post Real Estate section.

Northern Virginia’s top remodeling company, Moss Building & Design, was featured in the Washington Post regarding the recent completion of an in-law suite addition in Springfield, VA. Recently, in-law suites have risen in popularity. These kinds of additions allow families to stay close while providing enough square footage for additional family members.

An in-law suite by definition is a space that includes a bedroom, sitting area, and a bathroom. In the D.C. Metro region, these areas cannot include more than a couple appliances, a stove, or a full kitchen because this would require a special permit.

The Washington Post article featured the Harris family and their in-law suite addition in Northern Virginia. Moss Building & Design built a 1,000-square foot addition for the family, creating a new kitchen and great room alongside an in-law suite. Through this new addition, Diane Harris enjoys a private and personalized space that is accessible to the main features of the home. In the suite, there is a bedroom-living area with a bathroom equipped for accessibility: a low-curb shower with ramp entry, a hand-held shower head, built-in bench, and grab bars.

Co-owner Jason Hampel advises homeowners considering this in-law suite additions to “design with the long term in mind” and to consider the number of uses for the space which could range from housing a relative to adding a positive home element if selling the house later on.

Moss has seen a rise in the number of in-law suites this year doubling their number from 2012.

The article is currently featured online in the Real Estate section of The Washington Post. It will run in the print edition of The Washington Post on Saturday, August 16th.
