Want to build on my mothers property like a Mother-N-Laws place or looking at some of the tiny houses but, my ideals are getting bigger than most of the tiny houses? My mom is getting up in age and there is over an acre empty next to her than is pd for and i would still have my privacy and could watch over her.

    What is the question?

    Build as if you are going to live there forever, but able to sell it tomorrow. Engaging a local architect will help.

    A small 2-bedroom house with a second floor loft is probably a misfit. A loft will require a stair, which will take up room on the first floor, but only leading to an open space loft on the upper level. Is there a special reason for wanting a loft?

    It might be simpler and less expensive to simply build a 3 BR 2 B one-level house, depending on design.

    Good luck on your project.

    I'd ask Houzz, politely, to remove this post. You've posted your name and address on a very public forum! :(
