Multiple Generations Living Harmoniously
Youngquist Homes has seen a rise in multi-generational living, typically grown children, grandparents, and grandchildren all living in the same home. At times, a great-grandparent may also be part of the household.
These families often deal with personal space issues in more traditional home plans, but are now finding something for everyone in the newest design trends developed for multigenerational families - including additional living quarters on the first floor.
The Youngquist Homes 25th Anniversary Home was built specifically for the growing trend of multi-generational families living in the Triangle.
The home may feature a master and guest (in-law) suite on the main floor, both with private bath and walk-in closet. An open plan with lots of gathering areas and additional bedroom and recreation areas upstairs provides families with flexible living space.
The luxury townhomes at Tryon Villas also provide a perfect environment for multiple generations to live harmoniously.
According to experts, the popularity of additional living quarters will grow as baby boomers age. Baby Boomer homeowners are increasingly finding themselves needing to provide a safe environment for aging parents and/or adult children (including grandchildren).
According to a U.S. Census Bureau report, the number of American households with three or more generations living in the same home rose 38 percent from 1990 to 2000.
Popularly known as the "sandwich generation," the empty nester couple begins caring for an aging parent not long after older children have left the home. However, this sandwich generation is increasingly converting to multi-generational living thanks to another societal trend - the "boomerang generation." Boomerangs are young adults who choose to move back to their parents' home after a period of already living on their own. Boomerangs usually return after college, but some have been on their own much longer and can return with a spouse and children.
Multi-generational families can also take advantage of energy savings with our ENERGY STAR® qualified new homes. Our commitment to green building means reduced utility bills and less impact on our precious natural resources.
