|Found this cute little, multigenerational image online.|
A few years ago on this blog I wrote about the guest apartment we were building adjacent our new home off MacArthur Blvd in Cabin John. This wouldn't be a normal guest apartment, it would be my mom's new home and what would end up being her final. With an elevator, full kitchen, simple bathroom, laundry and even a small balcony, Granny would hopefully feel right at home. In this new, tiny home of hers, she would be safe, see her grandkids whenever she wanted and she would have some independence too.
In today's Washington Post there is a great article about the growing trend of multigenerational homes that you may find interesting.
OPaL's latest project in Montgomery County will offer family size homes with elevators and in-law suites under one roof. The Manors | Kensington opens for sales in just a few weeks. Just steps from Westfield Wheaton Mall and Metro the homes are infinitely walkable, both inside and out!
