Family structures in the western world are vastly different today than they were throughout most of written history. Multiple generations used to stay under the same roof throughout their whole lives. The family would build on itself through time, and as older generations died off, new ones would be born. Children did sometimes move out and start houses of their own, but that was the exception rather than the rule. Modern times along with modern technology created more separation between families than ever before. Children are now expected to move out as soon as they are able and are never expected to move back home. Seniors and retirees are expected to go to nursing homes or retirement villages.
With a bad economy and high costs of living, some of this is starting to change. More young people than ever are moving back home after graduating college. Seniors are staying in their existing homes or moving in with their children because they don’t have the retirement savings to rent or buy new property. With this trend comes the need for home remodeling: room additions, bathroom renovations and aging in place improvements. Seniors moving in with the family will need structural improvements to make sure that they can live comfortably and safely. Room additions may need to be constructed so that there is enough room for children moving back home or for other members of the family that may need a place to stay.
