Three generations under one roof to beat the housing crisis

Recommended Posts

I think it deserves its own thread.

This bit

Almost £1m was spent converting it into a home appropriate for multi-generational living. Situated over five floors, it has three kitchens, five bathrooms and seven bedrooms.

Spending £1 per house seems expensive and possibly not affordable on a large scale.

To be fair I'm guessing a lot of the money was spent on the experimental monitoring/sensors etc and stuff like "water from the washing machine is recycled for use in the toilet" so the £1m is not really indicative of what a normal conversion would cost.

OH LOOK, what I have always been saying; that there is no housing crisis, because people are taking up far too much space per person and that they would be far happier living together under one roof turned out to be exactly true.

ALWAYS BET ON LOCKE

All down to how much space the three families have, seven bedrooms, five loos, and three living rooms, one large or two kitchen/cooking laundry areas.....bigger than some box homes 3 individual families live in.......all heating shared, food shopping costs could be drastically reduced...only one tv license, council tax/water rate bill....huge savings can be made......great idea, but get it not everyone's cup of tea......not everyone has an extended family they could get together with even if they wanted to.;)

If a family start looking after 2  grandparents who become senile , then the figures become a lot more attractive vs state funded social care 

Yes a 1M house hardly constitutes people living in a crisis LOL

Lots of people would like to look after their older relatives rather than them going into care homes, but the typical couple are both working full time to pay for the home that's just about big enough for themselves.
