Chuck and Holly Paetz have a beautiful home in South Nashville. I have worked with Chuck in the Real Estate industry for years even partnering on many deals to play to our strengths. He approached me about helping them to remodel an existing garage and workshop into an in law suite for Holly’s parents. The unit was to one side of their pool and also had a restroom, storage, and a shed. I love anything to do with water themed design, and the Paetz’s have been long time personal colleagues and friends so of course I was elated to be their Architect.
We get asked all of the time about In Law Suites. Nashville has been growing so fast, that many home owners and investors are considering the opportunities associated with Accessory Dwellings and potential Rentals for extra income and to fill a pent up market demand in our growing city . The funny thing is that there are so many names of these apartment style units! Just check out The Many and Confusing Synonyms for ADUs. (Accessory Dwelling Units) Mother-in-law Suites, Granny flats, Cottages, and Above the Garage Apartments, are all in our vocabulary. Below is a recent case study on how to incorporate an in law suite to your home and benefit from the added space and opportunity.

One of our favorite investor clients, always helping others, brought us in on a Single Family Home Remodel planned to use as both an interim residence for a friend of the family AND as an investment flip after a couple of years time.Continue Reading →
We started the project looking at the neighborhood, an eclectic mix of Old and New – one of Nashville’s many neighborhoods that is undergoing tremendous growth and gentrification. The property itself, ripe with the smell of old beer, marijuana, and garbage had beautiful “bones”. It just needed a little tender love and care.

WKND Hang Suite – Nashville Bar Remodel
A repeat client reached out to us to help them bring more revenue into their Weekend “WKND” centric business night club model. We worked through visioning with two of the partners about how to convert an existing back room of the building into a weekday space, that could service business professionals hoping to avoid Nashville’s scary rush hour traffic, double as space for private events, AND transition back into the original weekend bar business model. We were also asked to Phase this project to include a New outdoor patio area in the rear of the building that could be accessed from the alley and back of house.
We suggested this client utilize our Creator Service Package to get a comprehensive feel for the space before embarking on the remodel. This service package is a less expensive option than Full Scale Architectural Construction Documents that can give our clients the vision and direction to take a space and phase construction as desired. If major building components are not being modified and codes requirements are still being met, then a Southern Athena Service Package could be the best Architectural route to take for your budget. We cover Architectural Phases through Design Development with the Creator Package.
