Tips on How to Build Multigenerational Homes

Build Multigenerational HomesAccording to statistics, more than 51 million families in the United States have opted to live in multigenerational homes. And because moving their grandparents into a nursing home is not an option, these types of homes have becoming increasingly important.

Huffington Post came up with a list of things you need to consider before you start planning your “in-law” apartment.

  1. Conduct a thorough assessment of your house and decide what specific additions you would like to have. Make sure you are able to give the people who will live there a comfortable place to stay.
  2.  Check your resources as well as your budget. Figure out how much you would like to spend on your home construction. You can get an estimate of the actual cost by speaking to builders, architects and designers.
  3. Don’t forget to set an appointment with the planning experts in your town. Building inspectors can give you tips on what is allowed when building a second unit in your home.

I am so impressed with the job that Gregg and Karen did for my aunt's home. Not only did they take the time to explain thorougly what they were going to do, but they did EXACTLY as they promised.

We never expected to get the sales price for the house that we ended up getting. If you had seen my aunt's home before they started, you would know why. By the time the job was done, the house looked totally transformed.

Needless to say... I highly recommend their services!
