With a variety of socio-economic factors at work, a record number of Americans are living in multi-generational homes, defined as homes with two or more adult generations residing together. As of 2016, 64 million Americans—or 20% of the U.S. population—are living in a multi-generational arrangement, which may be adult children still living at home with parents or aging parents moving into their adult child’s home rather than nursing homes.
Shifts in affordability, increased immigration, changes in cultural norms and longer life expectancy are fueling this trend, which is continuing to increase. Today’s homebuyers are looking for multi-generational floor plans to accommodate their unique family structures.
Homes designed specifically for multi-generational family homebuyers are on the cutting edge of design. They often include self-contained, apartment-like living areas with a bedroom, a full bath, a kitchenette, a separate entrance and sometimes a laundry room and garage. As a semi-custom home builder, Trinity Homes can help you design a home with spaces and features that everyone will enjoy. Here are some of our favorite home plans that can be customized for your unique living arrangements.
