Surviving a Kitchen Remodel

 

Kitchen Remodel

Life is busy at our Multi-Gen house with the kitchen remodel update in full swing. Right now, it’s chaos central. Naturally, the biggest headache is trying to cook and clean up. But a Weber grill with a side burner is getting a lot of use. And a utility sink in the garage works well for washing pots, pans, and dishes.

 

My sis and her husband, who live on another level of our home, offered to let us use their kitchen. But, honestly, carrying things up and down the stairs would just add to the workload. Plus, it would be pretty crowded with all of us cooking different meals – especially at the same time.

 

Mom, who lives with us, is a good sport about the remodel and is getting used to the “glamping” aspect of the ordeal. Her morning oatmeal is made in the microwave and we try make sure we still have her favorite foods around. It requires thought, prep, and planning. So far, so good.

What’s up with the Blazers?

 

Plus, mom is a big Portland Trail Blazers fan and has been pretty distracted with her job as their number one cheerleader.  She’s even been wearing her team jersey to her Silver Sneakers classes – we’re sorry they’ve lost the last 3 games, but we also respect and admire the Golden State Warriors.  May the best team win.

 

Patience is a virtue.

 

Back to the kitchen. Hopefully in a few days, we’ll be able to test out the new double ovens. However, installing the new gas stove, the farmhouse sink, and the dishwasher will have to wait until the counter tops are in place. Since the counter fabricators are booked until May 30th, it will be at least a month before we get our new quartz counters.

 

We’ve been warned, remodeling is an endeavor in patience, and it certainly is. , but we know the end result will be worth the hassles. Tonight, we’re taking a break and having take-out. Woohoo! Happy Sunday.

Multigen Home Sales

Multigenerational Homes Are An Evolving Market

Multigenerational home sales are an evolving niche in the real estate market. This is true in Clark County WA as well. “Multigen” is where two or more generations decide to move back in together.

There are many advantages, financial and emotional. Often elderly parents move in with their adult children. This is much more desirable than a nursing home, or an independent living facility, which can be very costly. Sometimes grandparents are capable of share in child-rearing responsibilities. Everyone benefits from this arrangement.

Since we live in a multigen household, we specialize in finding and selling those types of homes. Our multigen homes are located on acreage or large lots. They have “elbow room for the soul”, which provides lots of room & privacy.

According to the most recent 2016 study by the Pew Research Center, 1 in 5 homes in the U.S. are now multigen. Because of this trend, multigen homes will continue to be popular. Likewise, it is a good way to address caring for the elderly in a rapidly aging population.

Work With Multigenerational Home Sales Experts

Working with multigen clients can pose some challenges. In spite of the demand for multigen homes, separate living quarters are not a common feature. So you often end up finding homes that are not quite set up with separate quarters, but could be. Here, it takes some some ingenuity to imagine how a home can accommodate all family members. From our own experience of upgrading an existing home to multigen, we can identify those homes best suited for modifications.
