Resurgence of multigenerational living acknowledged by Schuyler Builders
SARATOGA - An antiquated once necessary housing option is redefined by a forward thinking conscious choice to share lives. Schuyler Builders constructs a revival of harmoniously coexisting with loved ones, a resurging concept in housing and homeownership. Schuyler’s ‘multigenerational homes’ are living spaces that provide an atmosphere for parents, grandparents and children to grow old together by incorporating a custom, private, lower level suite design for your family to visit or stay.
Families living under one roof was once the norm in the USA. After the Second World War the U.S. economy fully transitioned from agrarian to industrial manufacturing. Returning service men and women moved to the cities to take advantage of education provided by the G.I. Bill and the jobs that the manufacturing economy made possible. Pent up demand for consumer goods after the Great Depression and the war along with greater prosperity made owning single-family homes possible. When people left the family farm for the city, the distance made returning rarely feasible. Add to that, life expectancy was not what it is today.
