Builders Tweak Floorplans for Multi-Generation Families
As more and more adult children and aging parents move back under one roof, home owners are finding the need for more separate, defined spaces within the home, and builders are working to fulfill that need.
From flexible first floors that can be anything from a in-law suite, nursery, or home office to second floors with an entirely separate entrance, home builders like Lennar are striving to create new multi-purpose spaces. Lennar's "Next Gen Home" which they market as a "home within a home", focuses on creating an innovative space that can be kept as part of the main house or as an entirely private residence.
This floor plan shown is one of the "Next Gen" homes offered by Lennar around the country; the section in blue shows the area of the home with the potential to be a private residence.
