MULTI-GENERATIONAL HOMES // August 8, 2017
Avalon Master Builder is always searching for ways to better serve the communities in which we build. So it comes as no surprise that we have developed multi-generational homes in Redstone to meet the needs of a growing section of today’s homebuyers.
Some families long for the closeness of family members living under the same roof, others share their homes with family for health reasons and others have moved back in with parents because of financial issues. There are many ways multi-generational homes can assist all types of families.
• Roots – As our family grows, sharing a multi-generational home can keep children (and grandchildren) close by for teaching important values and family history – as well as having a built-in baby sitter.
• Caregiving – As we age, health issues come to the forefront and having family members within the home can often ease the burden of caregiving. While independence is important, many multi-generational homes offer separate living quarters for those who want to be close, but not too close.
• Financial – Today it can be more difficult than ever to make a successful transition to independent living. Mortgages are often out of reach for many, so staying at home or moving back in can be a welcome solution to saving for a substantial down payment, while also assisting parents.
• Socializing – Sharing a multi-generational home can be a friendly and sociable experience, helping to strengthen the family bond and can often be more beneficial to living alone.
Multi-generational homes, like the ones in Redstone in Calgary’s Northeast can provide many, if not all of the benefits listed above. ZEN Redstone offers up to 5 bedrooms – more than enough space for an extended family unit. These rooms may be utilized as bedrooms, a playroom, an office or additional storage until the family grows.
