Live with Parents, Children, or just buy a tiny house

Living with parents, adult children or buy a Tiny House!

I was reading two interesting articles.  One was multi-generational living article from and the other are these tiny houses mentioned in Inside Business The Hampton Roads Business Journal

Homes with In law Suites is a viable option

Immigrating to this country and living in New York City, my family had a period of time when we did live in a multi-generational style with grandparents.

It was sometimes the necessity. This picture on the  left is an example of a house with a design that invites the In-laws with an in ground pool and hot tub, perhaps the parents aren't so stressful. 

Now (many years later), that we are empty nesters my wife and I are trying to enjoy a single generation, us! However, I do think that multi-generational living may still appear again for us.

This picture on the right is a home for sale with an in ground pool and paved patio for low maintenance and stress reduced lifestyle and has a third floor in-law suite, which may be perfect for that college grad that moves back home. I personally feel you should have an outlet for stress and a place to get away for some alone time.


Tiny Home may be the way to go for a simpler life

The smallest house I ever rented was about 778 sq ft. It was just me and my expectant wife. Now, as I am middle age, I always think of where will visitors stay or sleep, where do we entertain or dine with friends.


The Marie Colvin


Tiny home and new construction? On the other hand by a piece of land, build your own and be out of true debt in a few years? Seems ideal. This house for model home is from a company called Four Lights Tiny House Company . This is just one of several models they offer.

Houses that are conducive to multi-generational living will become more popular. "Aging in place" support systems means more families will be looking for homes that will comfortably accommodate aging parents.
