Why Multi-Generational Living Calls For Flexible Space Configurations

Spending more time at home than ever before makes the idea of living with elderly parents or in-laws more attractive than ever. Multi-generational living is a long-held tradition in many cultures and has increased dramatically across the United States during the coronavirus pandemic. Living with grandparents helps working parents get the support they need with childcare. Plus, many families are enjoying closer proximity to feel closer to their loved ones. Setting up healthy boundaries helps create a comfortable multi-generational household. A bit of space between sleeping areas and spacious common rooms are essential for multi-generational families who want to easily transition from time together to time alone while living under the same roof. 

If you are considering living with extended family members, H&H Homes’ adaptable floorplans can set you up with the ideal amount of space and the best room configuration for your family. The Calabash, for example, can flex between 2-4 bedrooms, including an optional additional master bedroom. There are also several multi-use spaces, such as a rec room and an outdoor patio space that can be covered to extend your living area. With a spacious kitchen that connects to a large dining room, the Calabash makes it easy for families to find a central gathering place for snacks or meals. If bringing aging parents or in-laws into your home is not in your near-term plans but is potentially on the horizon for your family in the future, choose a floorplan that affords you the space to expand your lifestyle and adapt how different rooms are used during the days and nights.
