Welcome! You’ve reached the landing page for my 31 Days of Multi-Generational Living.
I’ve accepted the challenge set by 31 Days, and will be posting every day in October on this topic. I hope you’ll come back frequently to read my latest post.
Why Did I Pick This Topic?
Other than a brief mention or two on my blog, I haven’t talked much about Dad living with us.
When I was brainstorming a topic to write one for 31 days, I kept coming back to the numbers. 10 (people) X 3 (generations) + 1 (house) = 31. I think it was meant to be!
In reality, I’m hoping to share some of the tips I’ve learned. Dad moved in late December 2014, so I have almost a year of multi-generational experience to share.
With 10 people living here, we’ve been creative in making room and space for everyone.
I’ll start with the story. Click on Day 1 below to read it.
This list will keep expanding every day.
If you have any specific questions about multi-generational living, be sure to comment, and hopefully I’ll be able to answer it in a post this month!
