Before WW II, it was commonplace for Grandma and Grandpa to move into that spare bedroom. When the war ended the model changed as home buyers embraced the new American dream, a home in the suburbs – with no room for aging parents.
The tide has turned and multi-generational living is making a comeback. One in six Americans currently live in a multi-generational household. It’s not always aging parents, adult children are also embracing the multi-generational lifestyle. The trend may have started because of economics but they’re staying together because it benefits everyone in the household.
Some builders have begun offering two master suites or other bonus areas with flexible space that can accommodate changing family needs. Another solution is adding a multi-room addition with its own entrance. It allows for privacy and independent living.
Regardless of the need for a multi-generational space, this South Tampa builder can be a great resource for your remodel and new build to accommodate multi-generational living.
