Designs for Gen X

July 11, 2018
Designs for Gen X

Want to please a Gen X audience? Gen X buyers may need room for both school-age kids and aging parents, which is why this is sometimes called the Sandwich Generation. These spacious designs handle a variety of situations with flexible layouts.

Sleek Style for a Busy Family Architectural House Design - Contemporary Exterior - Front Elevation Plan #935-14 This sleek home, plan 935-14 wraps around a spacious side courtyard to provide plenty of outdoor living, even on a not-super-wide lot. The master suite and a secluded guest zone both reside on the main level, while kids will make the upper level (with two bedroom suites and a loft) their hangout upstairs. Other notable features include a wet bar in the great room and the large pantry that can hold enough groceries for a busy family. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Independent Apartment for In-Laws Architectural House Design - Designs for Gen X This hill country contemporary design offers a space for everyone and an unexpected amount of privacy while still delivering a wonderfully warm and inviting family feel through the indoor/outdoor living and dining rooms. A separate casita resides at the rear of the house with its own private entrance and porch; useful as an office or vacation rental space.

Thoughtful touches such as a morning nook adjacent to the kitchen, a pocket office for managing family business as well as a media room for family movie night makes this more than a house, rather an ideal family home. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Flexible Guest Suite Architectural House Design - Traditional Exterior - Front Elevation Plan #437-83 An elderly parent will appreciate the first-floor location of the guest suite, complete with a private bathroom that boasts a large shower. Plan 437-83 also features golf-cart storage in the garage that could be used for a lawnmower or sports equipment. In the middle of the home, the open layout encourages mingling. A small office can be closed off with trendy barn doors. Two additional bedrooms upstairs can hold kids. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Ready for a Big Family Architectural House Design - Contemporary Exterior - Front Elevation Plan #132-564 Located on the main floor and boasting an adjoining full bathroom, the den of plan 132-564 can easily become a guest suite or grandma's room. Four more bedrooms upstairs hold the rest of the family. The master suite includes a huge closet, sleek bathroom, and easy proximity to the laundry room. The open layout downstairs feels contemporary and relaxed. See more images, information, and the floor plan.
