We would like to purchase a house in Rockwall county with plans to build a mother-in-law suite into the garage. What neighborhoods would allow this?
It would not be the neighborhood but the city. Also new builds are making an in-law suite in the plans.

Is it good idea to take hardwood option with the builder or take the carpet and do the hardwood later?
pskreddy,
It's easier and cheaper to put carpet over hardwood, then to replace carpet and install hardwood. It would probably make sense get the hardwood.

In my opinion, the hardwood option is definitely the better option. Many buyers have allergies and prefer the hardwood, and generally it is preferred by most buyers today.
