The cost of adding space for family

In a recent online poll of Angie's List members, we asked the 17 percent who said they have an in-law suite or plans to build one: How much money did you spend or do you intend to spend?

$5,000-$10,000 — 26%

$10,001-$20,000 — 22%

$20,001-$50,000 — 35%

More than $50,000 — 17%

Subject: designing in-law quarters when zoning says no

My daughter and son-in-law lives in NJ and
wants to give me an apartment in her basement.

Zoning laws say you can't add a bedroom (she has 4) because of the septic and you can't add a kitchen - no two families allowed.

How can we design something that would get around these laws? We have enough funds to do what would be necessary.
