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 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 Families with live-in relatives will appreciate the attached but independent apartment on the main level of plan 1010-206 . In this private enclave, an in-law (or perhaps a tenant) gets a full kitchen, living room, bedroom, bathroom, laundry closet, and even a porch. The main portion of the home features an angled kitchen snack bar that opens to the casual dining room. A study makes it easy to work from home. Parents of young children will like the upstairs location of the master suite, not far from the other bedrooms but complete with a modern bathroom and large walk-in closet. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Flexible Guest Suite 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 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.
