Mother Daughter Homes & Multi-generational homes
Looking for Mother daughter homes or multi-generational homes?
Mother Daughter homes, also called multi-generational homes are becoming the new trend. With so many dual-working couples and the high cost of child care, many families are having mom and dad help out with babysitting. It makes it so much easier to have everyone living under one roof instead of having to drive young children to grandma and grandpas house every day.
Combining two generations of families is a tremendous help with savings on utility bills and house/yard maintenance.

If you have a living room next to a den, you might be able use this space to create a space for mom. If you have a walk-out basement, this could be also a consideration for making an in-law suite.
