So, I live with my parents… A tale of multigenerational living
One of my greatest accomplishments was to be able to move my mom and dad from their home of 40 years in Central Wyoming to live with me and my family here in Denver. One of the main reasons we chose to do this arrangement was simply because of the layout of the home – a Lennar NextGen home in Central Park. If you haven’t heard of a NextGen or multigenerational home, basically this means two homes under one roof. There is a main entrance to the home as well as a secondary entrance to a separate space with a bedroom, bathroom, laundry area, kitchen, and living room.
Pew Research Center published an interesting article stating “According to an analysis of census data from 1971-2021, the number of people living in multigenerational family households quadrupled during that time period, reaching 59.7 million in March 2021. The share more than doubled as well, to 18% of the U.S. population.”
There are several reasons multigenerational housing is on the rise in the U.S., from the cost of living to caregiving, and many reasons in between, this trend of multigenerational living does not seem to be slowing down.
These multigenerational homes are fantastic for not only extra family members but could even be used to make you some extra income as this separate space is fantastic to be rented out either long term or even as an Airbnb!
I do have to address the question I always get asked when I tell people I live with my parents… every day isn’t sunshine and roses, but this arrangement has worked out well for us.
Below is a list of all the multigenerational homes and communities I could find in or near the Denver area. These are all brand new construction homes.
