Benefits of Multi-Generational Living

Multi-generational living presents an array of benefits to household members to list a few are financial and logistical benefits, cutting costs on household expenses, putting more money in savings, and sharing in special family moments that will be remembered for a lifetime are benefits that family members can enjoy.

  • A Shared Mortgage – With one shared mortgage, there is no need to pay a secondary rent or elderly housing costs.
  • Shared Utilities – Multi-generational housing provides two or three separate living spaces, but only one utility bill.
  • Shared Maintenance – Home maintenance can add up to thousands of dollars each year, but it must be done to keep the home in working order.
  • Elder Care - Allows for easier care for aging family members, allowing them to live in a family environment rather than in assisted living facilities, which can be both costly and impersonal.
  • Higher Resale Value – According to demographic trends, multi-generational housing is something that many buyers are looking for today.

Key Features our Design Team Includes in a Remodel for Multi-generational Living when beginning design work for your remodel:

Private Suites

We design private suites for grandparents or adult children, ensuring they have their own comfortable spaces. These suites often include a bedroom, a sitting area, and a private bathroom, providing independence while still being connected to the main household.

Accessible Design

Accessibility is a priority, with features such as wider doorways, no-step entries, walk-in showers with benches, and grab bars in bathrooms. We aim to make every area of the home safe and accessible for family members with mobility challenges.

Flexible Living Spaces

Our designs include flexible living spaces that can serve multiple purposes, such as home offices, hobby rooms, or play areas for children. These spaces are adaptable to the changing needs of the family over time.

Open-Plan Kitchens and Living Areas

We focus on creating spacious open-plan kitchens and living areas that become the heart of the home, facilitating family interaction and gatherings. Large islands, ample seating, and efficient layouts ensure the kitchen is functional for cooking and socializing.

Soundproofing and Privacy Solutions

Understanding the importance of privacy and quiet spaces, we incorporate soundproofing materials and design strategies to minimize noise transfer between living areas and private suites, ensuring a peaceful living environment for everyone.

Outdoor Living Spaces

Recognizing the value of outdoor living, we design inviting outdoor spaces such as patios, decks, and gardens that encourage family time and provide safe play areas for children, enhancing the home's connection to nature and the outdoors.

Energy Efficiency and Sustainability

We incorporate energy-efficient appliances, lighting, and sustainable materials, reducing utility costs and supporting a healthier environment, which is beneficial for all generations.

At Broderick Dean Construction, we understand the unique dynamics of multi-generational households. Our design team collaborates closely with you to understand your family's specific needs and preferences, ensuring that the remodel not only meets but exceeds your expectations for comfortable, inclusive multi-generational living.

Ways to incorporate multi-generation living into your home

  1. Remodeling for An Additional Primary Suite

    Remodeling your existing space to add an additional primary suite involves converting or repurposing areas within your current home. This could mean transforming underused spaces, like basements or large storage areas, into a fully functional suite with a bedroom, bathroom, and possibly a small living area or kitchenette.

    This option can be more cost-effective than building an addition, as it utilizes existing space. It's ideal for properties with space constraints or zoning restrictions that limit external expansions.

    Our team excels in creatively maximizing your existing space, ensuring the new primary suite is seamlessly integrated with the rest of your home while offering the comfort and privacy needed for multi-generational living.

  2. Adding a Home Addition for an Additional Primary Suite

    Constructing a home addition for an additional primary suite involves expanding your home’s footprint to add a new, self-contained living space. This option is ideal when you require more space than what’s available within your current home’s layout.

    We specialize in designing and executing home additions that not only meet the specific needs of multi-generational families but also enhance the overall functionality and beauty of your home.

  3. Building from the Ground Up to Incorporate an In-Law Suite

    Building a new home or undertaking a major renovation project to incorporate an in-law suite allows for the most flexibility in design and customization. This option is considered when families decide to move or when the current home cannot feasibly accommodate multi-generational living through remodeling or additions.

    Our expertise in new home construction and major renovations means we can guide you through the entire process of creating a home that beautifully accommodates multi-generational living, from conceptual design to construction and finishing touches.

For each of these options, Broderick Dean Construction brings a wealth of experience, a commitment to quality, and a deep understanding of the nuances involved in creating homes that support multi-generational families. Our goal is to help you create a space that meets the needs of every family member, ensuring comfort, privacy, and functionality.
