Tennessee homeowners Lisa and Travis Cummings invited Lisa’s mother to live with them and their 8-year-old son. Despite three generations in the home, they are never worried about crowding.
“It’s interesting the way the house is laid out. It gives us privacy,” Lisa tells The Tennessean.
Their home in Nolensville, Tenn., was built by Regent Homes, which estimates that one out of 10 homes it builds is designed for a multigenerational household.
“If she wants company, she can open the door. If she wants privacy, she can close the door,” Lisa says of her mother. “It’s almost like a mini apartment.”
