Professional Builder's House Review design team offers five plans to accommodate parents, children, and grandparents under one roof.
Although initially driven by recent economic struggles, the multigenerational household appears to be gaining even more momentum due to demographic changes. The combination of aging Baby Boomers, boomerang children moving back home, and Millennials delaying marriage provides a sizable demand for family friendly housing options. Additionally, Latin American and Asian immigrants are quite comfortable living in multigenerational situations, just as most cultures were in times past. Since this idea appears to be much more than merely a trend, we asked our House Review design team to present both concepts and completed product that address this desire for flexible, extended family living arrangements.
