Floor Plans Perfect for Larger, Multigenerational Families

Posted by Melissa Lynn Galland on May 3, 2021 8:00:00 AM

Topics: Floor Plans

Multigenerational homes are one of the latest trends in homebuilding. Since the global pandemic, multigenerational home purchases have increased for a variety of reasons, the most important reason being to care for aging parents, followed by spending more time with family and cost savings. 

With all that said, the trend toward multigenerational homes had begun before the pandemic, which tells us this trend is expected to continue post pandemic. Parents are moving in with their adult children to help them raise kids, to help manage healthcare issues, or just to be closer to their family in general. It’s also common for adult children to return home after college to save money on living expenses or to continue helping out around the house.

The benefits of multigenerational living are clear and varied. Whether it’s to share financial and homeownership responsibilities, to strengthen relationships, or to ensure the safety of the elderly and children, it’s also important for everyone to have their own space. Choosing a flexible design option allows for private retreats in the home that are essential for minimizing family tension and for personal well-being. 

If you’re considering building a multigenerational home or just want to have that option in the future, consider some of these customizable floor plans. For the sake of convenience, we have organized the floor plans by our primary regions of the country: the Pacific Northwest and Central and Southern Arizona.

Best Floor Plans For Entertaining

Posted by Melissa Lynn Galland on Apr 30, 2021 8:00:00 AM

Topics: Floor Plans


If you're the entertaining type, you know how important a home's floor plan is.

Today’s homebuyers have much different priorities than those of only 10 or 20 years ago. These days, most buyers are looking for open-concept homes, state-of-the-art kitchens, and inviting outdoor living spaces, among other features. A love of entertaining is part of the reason behind this shift in priorities. The traditional formal living room and separate dining room don’t fit into this new attitude of homeowning.

Today, homeowners want flexible, open, free-flowing floor plans that allow for all types of get-togethers. Homeowners who love to entertain know that an open floor plan is much better for hosting Christmas or Thanksgiving dinner, movie night, book club, and everything in between. Contemporary homes make better use of square footage with large living areas; open-concept kitchens and dining rooms; and multiuse rooms that are perfect for home theaters, game rooms, and more.
