According to the Pew Research Center, and other national surveys, the demand for multigen housing continues to increase. Multigen homes emphasize private areas for independent living and can include features such as small kitchenettes, private bathrooms, multiple living areas or sitting rooms, and private entrances.
It can be hard to find homes with two master bedrooms, a mother in law suite design, a first floor master AND guest bedroom, or other features unique to multigenerational floor plan layouts. Below are two examples of our most requested multigenerational house plans – ready for three or more generations to share.
