The Comeback of Multi-Generational Housing

Communal living isn’t anything new.  However, after a decline in popularity many years ago, demographic changes that have been gaining momentum for decades are now causing this once downward trend to make a comeback.

If the idea of hosting your out-of-town relatives for a long weekend gives you anxiety, not to mention your 30-something year old moving back in after you finally became empty-nesters, this might not be a trend you are willing to embrace just yet.  But, we urge you to hear us out!  Keep reading on to see why...

Is "Now" the Right Time to Build?

Have you been on the fence about whether or not “now” is the right time to build?  Okay, maybe not right now.  After all, we all know that the dreaded “s” word will be flooding our vocabularies soon enough.  Besides, if we’re being totally honest, Ohio winters aren’t typically an ideal time to start construction anyhow.  However, it’s never too early to be thinking spring – especially with SNOW and colder temps on the horizon (there, we already said it).

All joking aside, there are several things to take into consideration before making the commitment to take that kind of financial plunge.  Here are a few things you might want to be thinking about if you’ve been wondering if “now” really is the right time to build:

Year in Review - 2014

If you’ve been reading our blog posts, you may have noticed that they’ve become fewer and farther between.  It is more likely than not because 2014 proved to be successful at keeping the Helen Scott Builders team on its toes!

Although the past year may have left little time to focus on anything other than the day-to-day (especially blogging), we always make time over the holidays to reflect on the many highlights throughout the year.

At this time last year, I had just been installed as President of the Home Builder’s Association serving Portage / Summit Counties.
