According to the US Census there is a trend toward more families living together. This is becoming more common because of the economic downturn associated with the Great Recession and social/cultural changes taking place in our society. When we were in Germany a few years ago we were surprised at the number of grandparents, children and their kids living in one home. Usually the homes were two stories and the grandparents had an apartment in on one floor and their children and young ones on another. Our own experience mirrors this phenomenon too. We lived on a farm which had 4 generations of my family living there at once. My parents lived next door about 20 paces away and my daughter’s family lived in an apartment in our residence to save money for the home they eventually would purchase. It was really wonderful to see my grandkids interacting with their great grandparents, something that very few children get to experience. We moved from the farm after my parents passed away (they live there for over 62 years). Currently we are living in Fort Collins in Dakota Ridge a wonderful subdivision in Fort Collins. Keeping with the family tradition, we now live within a 5 minute walk of 3 of our grandkids (and of course their parents too). We know of several other families who have purchased homes that are actually next to each other here in Fort Collins.
