What is a multi-generational home?
Multi-generational living is defined as two or more generations living together under one roof. According to Realtor Magazine, 64 million—or 20 percent of the U.S. population— were living under the same roof in 2016. Housing experts agree those numbers have continued to rise over the years.
Multi-generational homes offer the unique opportunity to share your new home with your loved one, while still maintaining adequate space and privacy for both parties. NestGen Spaces fits the mold for an array of lifestyles. Whether that is an aging parent, adult children returning from college, a special needs child looking to have a space of their own or an additional space to offer privacy for guest. Harris Doyle’s line of multi-gen homes, NestGen Spaces, are built to offer flexibility, independence and privacy.
What are the benefits of building a multi-generational home?
From financial savings to strengthening family ties and offering peace of mind, multi-generational living offers multiple benefits. Here are our top four benefits of multi-generational living.
- Multi-generational living is economically efficient. The economic benefits of moving a family member in your home far outweigh the cost of living for renting an apartment or assisted living options. The average cost of assisted living in Alabama is $3,075 per month or$36,900 per year!
- Multi-generational living strengthens family relationships. Having multiple generations under one roof creates more opportunities for family bonding. Loneliness is a rising problem across generations. With extended family living together, the older adults feel needed, engaged and loved; children have additional role models and support, while getting extra time with loved ones.
- Multi-generational living offers peace of mind and safety. With aging or special needs family members in the same home, it’s easier to ensure they are cared for properly. Traveling back and forth to a parent's home to care for them and their home while also trying to juggle your own home and family is tough. And, If an emergency does occur, someone is more likely to be present to offer help.
- Multi-generational living offers privacy. This is a big one! One of the primary concerns families face when shifting their lifestyle is the fear of losing privacy. With multiple generations under one roof, it can feel like privacy is hard to find. Yet, these floor plans are designed to ensure that every family member can have privacy, and allow for complete separation between the generations within the household.
