My MIL made us an interesting offer

She lives by herself and its getting hard for her to keep up with general matienance. So she suggested selling her house, and using the money to build us a garage with an apartment for herself over it and paying us rent to help out with the added electric and such.

We're seriously considering it because she's here a lot anyways, like 4-5 days a week a lot, and we'd end up with a free garage out of it.

Anyone have any thoughts? Would you let your MIL do it?

If I got along with her, absolutely. My MIL is a bossy alcoholic who hates kids, so it would be a horrible idea for me.

I can see her paying for extra utilities and such, but why would you make her pay rent on a garage SHE paid to build??

Mine is ok. I don't think I could be that close to her to all the time like that.

NO way! But me and my MIL don't get along. She is bossy and nosey and she is a hoarder.
