My child wanted me to put an cabin in our basement so she would have some privacy.
After talking to my partner about the basement apartment, he came up with some good objections, then she was only eighteen, and she would have a private entrance, and my friend and I wouldn’t have control over who was coming and going in our home. My partner proposed my friend and I put an cabin in the attic. It would be a little more work because my friend and I would need to put Heating and Air Conditioning up there, although she and any guests would need to come downstairs to use the powder room in the hallway. My pal and I could arrange the room to see if any men were coming and going. They would also need to enter through the home office or family room, because there were no private entrances to the attic. I told my child that if she wanted an cabin in the home so she had privacy, my friend and I would put one in the attic. She thought that was okay, although she asked about Heating and Air Conditioning. I told her my friend and I would get a mini split ductless Heating and Air Conditioning system and she would have heating and air conditioning up there. The attic was big enough that she would have a family room and a sitting room. She then asked about a powder room. My partner turned the conversation back to the Heating and Air Conditioning system. She looked at him and asked if she was still going to need to use the family upstairs powder room and the main entrance? He said it was only until my friend and I could afford to put a powder room in the attic. He ignored the private entrance question.
