The consequences of self-quarantine and social isolation are causing many people to reexamine their housing choices. The Quarantine forced millions of people to work from home, but was their home really conducive for doing business? Did it work for home schooling their kids?
TLK Luxury Custom Homes can build you a house that sets you free from the shackles of quarantined living with custom offices, home schooling space, kitchens designed to cook ahead and store lots of meals, larger areas to entertain your friends and space out back for your visitors to park their cars.
Apartment living and town homes may once have been great for busy young professionals who run out to work everyday, then meet their friends at clubs and restaurants. However, when your world suddenly locks down around you, your social life disappears and you find yourself alone in front of your computer all day. Social distancing turns into nightmare.
Even middle-aged Americans who were planning on downsizing or eventually moving to active retirement communities have decided to hold on to their comfortable, roomy houses. The social benefits of these communities fly out the window when your Governor or Mayor suddenly forbids gatherings and management simply cancels everything and locks you down.
The recent epidemic has made many people want to build a big house closer to their grown children. TLK Custom Homes can build you that home: the house you never dared dream of for less money than buying a tract home; the home customized to give you everything you'll need to enjoy Lockdown Living together with your loved ones!

Pew Research reports that in 2014, a record 60.6 million Americans lived in homes having two or more adult generations or grandparents and grandchildren. That’s a 30% increase from the prior seven years, however multi-generational living is simply returning to the norm.
Back in the early 1900s, more than half of all senior citizens lived with their children or with their children and grandchildren. Between 1950 and 1980, there was actually an abnormal drop in multi-generational living as television promoted the go-it-alone, “John Wayne.” lifestyle.
Down through history, wealthier families always lived together in large, multi-generational dwellings. With Millennials staying or moving home and seniors living decades longer than any other time since Biblical Genesis, we home builders are taking notice. If living with extended family is good enough for Southfork Ranch and Downton Abbey, why now give it some thought.
One builder advertises his multi-generational home plans as “two homes for the price of one.” We like to think of it as a completely autonomous apartment inside of the main house or a home within a home.
Financial savings aren’t the only benefits of multi-generational living. Caregiving becomes easier, child care becomes automatic, and children form tighter bonds with older family members. In fact, recent studies also suggest that children growing up in multi-generational households have higher performance in school than those who do not. Other research reveals that seniors who spend more time with grandchildren live longer.
We’d love to show you the many, many options of multi-generational home design. Call TK Kneedler at 972-345-3368 for the details.
