Cool home trends. A bit pricey, but coo l nonetheless. And as far as housing and construction recovery are concerned, those of us in the <a href="http://www.austinhomelistings.com/">Austin real estate</a> market are doing great!

I see so many large, (entire home garage sells), and when I stop as I always do, many people are moving in together. Whole families moving in with whole families in a three bedroom home, and  I asked this man last week how many people will live in the home, he said, “4 adults, 9 kids, with 4 dogs.” I think this new idea is better, because when family had to come and live with us for a while; it was almost a death-match.

We have been experiencing an increase in new construction at North Coast Packaged Homes utilizing our panelized framing packages to build homes that incorporate many of the design ideas mentioned in this article economically. 


High on the list include making homes accessible - not just for aging boomers - but for everyone using the home.  Stepless entries, wider doors and hallways and more conveniently located storage allow for evolving families from baby strollers to walkers.  Structural backing placed in the shower during construction make adapting easy instead of a nightmare.


All of the standard plans can be adapted to each families custom needs.

Having been in construction for all of my life, I love to see new things that are happening in the industry. Been doing it since I was ten and am 66 now. Fun doing remodeling. Like what I am seeing.                 Thanks for the info. Larry Velasco

These are all very positive steps. As the cost of living continues to increase, multi-generational homes will become more and more necessary. We'll also have to re-learn what constitutes a "need" and what is simply a "want". Smaller, more modest homes would be a step in the right direction. Less profit per unit, of course, but not many of us can afford large, overstated homes anymore -- and that's not likely to change any time soon.
