Many owners decide during the planning phase for a house with an annexe flat. There are many good reasons for this, ranging from the additional living space that generates rental income to the absolutely flexible use of the premises into old age.
A HUF construction family, who built a timbered house ART 3 with an annexe flat in Switzerland, speaks from experience: "When building the house, it was important to us that we could easily adapt our living situation to our family situation. The annexe flat offers us absolute flexibility.
To employ an au-pair for childcare, to give adult children their own area or to bring their grandparents to us later. All this is not a problem. Our house can cope with very different family situations."
