All under the same roof: Multigenerational housing outpaces cohabiting couples

Elise Brown and Ryan Berndt long planned to share a home with her parents, but the questions were: what and where? Any house the extended family bought would be a long-term investment. It had to be accessible for Brown’s parents, now fit and active, as they aged. Also, the 30-something couple soon would have children of their own, so they wanted bedrooms and play spaces. “We also need a large kitchen,” Brown said. “My mother is Italian, and she loves cooking. For us, communal eating is an important part of family life.”
