Multigenerational Living Part Two

In July we explored multigenerational living in the same community — families purchasing multiple homes in a community, creating their own community within a community. This month, let’s explore multigenerational living within one home. With adult children returning home, as well as parents moving in with children, there is a need for home designs that are spacious, while also offering the necessary privacy and autonomy.  The Firestone floor plan from TimberCraft Homes is a great example of contemporary home design that offers many of the features needed for comfortable, multigenerational living. The company will also be offering the Parker floor plan in the near future.

The Firestone floor plan features both an owner’s suite and a guest suite on the ground floor for easy convenience, as well as two additional bedrooms upstairs, providing plenty of space for each family member. In addition, there is a study and bonus room, further expanding the useful living space so that everyone has somewhere to work, study, play, or indulge in a favorite hobby. The main layout is open plan with a spacious kitchen, large living room, and a built-in breakfast nook that includes additional storage. In total, the floor plan has 2567 square feet and also includes three bathrooms and a two-car garage, as well as a  wrap-around porch at the front and a covered porch in the back.

With the inclusion of the owner’s suite and the guest suite, the older generations (parents and adult children) are able to have their own dedicated space for privacy. Since many multigenerational homes also include younger children, it helps to have additional bedrooms and a bonus room upstairs, letting the kids have their own area to be themselves. The separation by floor helps keep down some of the inevitable noise. Of course, the whole family has plenty of room to come together in the living room and kitchen, where recipes can be passed down, stories can be told, and bonds can be built across the generations.

The Firestone floor plan even comes in a variety of exterior elevations from modern contemporary home design to more traditional and craftsman styles, as well as transitional styles that ensure all generations are happy with the home, inside and out. Contact TimberCraft Homes today to learn about the Firestone and upcoming floor plans like the Parker that make multigenerational living a positive and comfortable experience.
