At the time of the last Census, one in five Australian households has adults from two or more generations living under one roof. That’s four million Aussies sharing a home! And it’s not just younger people staying at home longer either; multigenerational living also includes independent retirees as well as parents that need care.
Most cite housing or rental affordability as a main driver, but this isn’t the only benefit, it maintains close relationships across generations, provides help with younger children, security when you travel, sharing of chores and maintenance and, overwhelmingly, a lot more action and fun in the household – it’s not surprising Multigenerational Living is gaining traction.
In one recent survey conducted by The City Futures Research Centre, privacy was the No.1 issue for people living in a multigenerational home.
With this living arrangement come questions of how best to organise the space to ensure harmonious relations within the household.
Nathan Hollis, TR Homes Sales & Marketing Manager said “We worked hard with our designers to create a beautiful home that tackles multi-generational living by designing spaces that can meet these needs but give privacy. You can then go further and give each section a different personality by selecting complimentary fixtures and fittings.
The beauty of these spaces is they can also be repurposed for later, perhaps as an investment property with dual rental potential, or a holiday home with additional rental income.
We’re also delighted that the judges of the HIA South West Housing Awards were equally impressed with the design, as the 3G was announced Winner of Transportable/Kit Home 2017 on Saturday.”
Our 3G home makes multigenerational living easy by giving everyone their own space.
