In this recent article for The Wall Street Journal, Katy McLaughlin reports on why more families are turning to multi-generational homes, like Lennar’s Next Gen® – The Home Within a Home®.
Theresa “Tree” Hale, a 70-year-old retired paralegal, didn’t particularly want to move from her home of 40 years. But in July, she and her husband, Ron Hale, closed on a newly built house about 20 minutes away in Tolleson, Ariz. Her motive: The home was builder Lennar Corp.’s Next Gen design, featuring a first-floor suite with its own bedroom, living room, kitchen and bathroom. It would be the perfect place for Ms. Hale’s mother, 95-year-old Thelma Hall Williams, to live.
