A Carriage house (also reffered to as Coach house) was originally an outbuilding, literally for the storage of carriages. It was common for manors to include living space above for the on-call carriage staff. As lifestyles evolved, so too did the use of this versatile space. In modern versions of this structure, the space above is suitable as a separate hobby studio, business space, teen space, dwelling unit, guest suite, or a fully-equipped residence which could be suitable as a rental apartment, an in-law suite or mother-in-law suite. You may also find that building a carriage house is an ideal interim dwelling while you build your vacation or country home style!
