We all likely teach some aspect of housing issues in our elder law classes. We might talk about different types of supportive housing and different housing models, such as "mother-in-law" apartments or "granny flats", zoning issues, etc. I was interested in reading about multi-generational housing as a focus by Lennar Homebuilders. Known as NextGen: "The Home Within a Home", Lennar describes NextGen as a "great solution for long-term guests, family members or anyone else who can utilize this innovative space. It’s a complete suite with bedroom, eat-in kitchenette and living room. It can be integrated into a home’s living space or kept as a private residence."
