Multi-generational living has become more common among families these days. From having a parent come to live with you, or your recent college graduate moving back in, having enough privacy in your home for all family members is important to many new homeowners.
We have built several multi-generational homes. Some families simply want another master suite, while others want a completely separate living space for their family member. Here are a few examples of multi-gen homes that we have built.
The video above is a home that we recently built with an entire separate wing for the homeowners mother. Now when their mother comes to live with them she will have her own separate home within their home. A full kitchen, family room, master suite, plus a secondary bedroom and bathroom complete this wing of the home.
We have also finished a basement for another homeowner whose mother was moving in with them. Having your own kitchen, private walk-way, and family room still gives your parents the freedom that they need, while allowing you to be right there just in case.
Basements are great options for homeowners who might have permanent house guests later on down the road. Building a home with an unfinished basement now, allows you the opportunity to finish it later on when needed. Here are some of our favorite finished basements.
High ceilings, lots of can lights, and windows, make our basements feel less like the ones you grew up with in the 60’s and more like the perfect addition to your home. We will warn you though, having a space like this in your home might tempt your new college grad. to move back in with mom and dad.
