It is not unusual for aging parents to move-in with their children, but these days they have some competition from the “boomerangs.” Boomerangs are adult children who move back-in with their parents following college to save up some money or to look for a job before heading out on their own. While these children have lived under the same roof as their parents not too many years ago, it is still an adjustment following the freedom of college. They still want their independence, so it is important that metro Atlanta home designs accommodate the boomerangs need for space. At Traton Homes, we have several floor plans that include flex spaces or bonus rooms that are perfect for boomerang children.
This past Sunday, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution ran an article about boomerangs and cited that an April edition of the AARP Bulletin mentioned that, out of 51 million Americans, almost 17 percent of the population are living in a house with at least two adult generations. Whether it is aging parents or boomerangs moving into your home, Traton Homes has what you need to make your home perfect for every generation living under one roof.
Two of our recently opened Cobb County home communities, Great Oaks Estates and The Estates at Davis Ridge, offer plans that are ideal for multigenerational living. At Great Oaks Estates and The Estates at Davis Ridge, buyers will find spacious home designs and some that include a guest suite on the main level that is ideal for buyers with aging parents. In addition, the Glenstone plan at Great Oaks Estates includes an optional third-floor walk-up bonus room that can be turned into a retreat with a full bathroom and sitting area.
Multiple generations living under one roof can be an adjustment, but when you purchase a metro Atlanta home from Traton Homes, every member of your family can have a comfortable place to enjoy. For more information on our beautiful new homes, visit the Traton Homes website today.
