We understand that multigenerational families living under the same roof have very specific needs for public and private space. The Washington Post recently did an article on how homes with multigenerational family members are a growing trend and the good news is, there are lots of homes at the lake and in the Triangle that are perfect for this type of lifestyle.
What is a Multigenerational Home?
Pew Research Center defines a multigenerational household as one with grandparents and grandchildren or with two or more adult generations. In Pew’s most recent study on the matter in 2016, they found that 20% of Americans or 64 million people, lived in multigenerational homes. Multigenerational homes are perfect for not only financial reasons but emotional reasons as well. Many builders are now adapting their home designs to include features such as additional private or separate living spaces that are perfect for parents or even college students that are moving back home. Many of these features appeal to older generations such as first-floor masters, no raised transitions between rooms, grab bars in first floor bathrooms, and more. You can get a feel of what it is like to live in a multigenerational home from The Washington Post article about a family that has three generations that are living together including two teenage girls, their parents, and the girls’ three living grandparents. The ages in the home span from 13 to 87.
