Multi-living is on the rise, and it’s better than ever.
The housing industry has seen enormous change in recent years. Less land and higher prices has called for smarter building practises – and with that comes a change in how Kiwis live together.
The benefits of multi-living are extensive. With older children now choosing to stay at home for longer, families can enjoy living together without being under each other’s feet. Multi-living doesn’t have to mean sharing spaces. It can mean separate dwellings under one roof, attached flats, or “two-for-one” homes. These type of house plans open up all sorts of opportunities for more people to live together while still having their own space.
Landmark Homes’ have just released three new multi-living (or home and income) Ready to Build designs to offer homeowners options for future proofing their home whether as an owner occupier, or even as an investment opportunity.
These plans open all sorts of opportunities for more people to live together while still having their own space. Trends include the increase of multi-story properties in urban spaces, as well as adding secondary spaces as part of a home build for rental opportunities or home offices, or providing an additional income by renting to long-term tenants or Airbnb guests.
Check out Landmark Homes’ new home and income house plans, and you’ll see why it’s the way of the future!
