Multigenerational homes are homes that cater for two or more generations living under a single roof.
In Australia, over four million people already live in a Multigenerational home, which accounts for a massive one in five of all Australians.
When a home is large enough and is designed by a professional in a way that takes into account all of your family’s needs and requirements, multigenerational living can be a mutually beneficial arrangement with many advantages:
Shared maintenance and yard care costs
Grandparents are able to spend more time and look after their grandchildren while the parents are at work
Elderly parents can be cared for easily while still keeping their independence
If multigenerational living sounds like a good arrangement for your family, then you might like to consider either extending your current family home to accommodate the other members of your family in a way that creates a separate living area OR building a custom new home that has been specifically designed to suit your family’s needs and requirements.
