Would make it a duplex. Different code requirements, taxes, entrance, separate utilities, its a mess.

Would a vent hood screw things up, too? Then maybe a two-burner hot plate goes on the counter later on.

Probably wouldn't fly with the inspector but I am not sure.

It wasn't a need of the client.

If their pots/pans support induction cooking, a two burner induction cook top is the way to go. I finished off the basement at my last house and when the friend who was buying the place moved in, we moved down stairs.

Same deal with the duplex issue so I used this cook top instead. True Induction makes it. Boils water about twice as fast as a regular stove. Super awesome. You have to have the right type of pots though.

We still use it at this house cause of energy efficiency and time savings. It just sits on our stove top.

Re: Basement In-law Suite


Looks very nice, Dan. I'm curious as to how you decide the placement of the knobs on the cabinets. I've always wondered when I put them on if they should go high or lower in the middle. I usually get the home owner involved in that decision. I think it looks good as is though. Nice job all the way around.
