New homes provide space for extended family - Article Photos 1/4

In this Friday, April 13, 2012 photo, Lennar Homes sales manager Joy Broddle, left, talks with Kelly, center, and Bill Noorish while standing in the living area of the main house of a model Next Gen home, in Las Vegas. The Noorishes, who moved to Las Vegas recently from Pensacola, Fla. and have a multigenerational home under construction, will be joined soon in by their 32-year-old son and his wife. Builders across the country are revamping home designs to meet the needs of a growing number of Americans who are now living with extended family. The number of so-called multi-generational households where adults are living with their elderly parents or grown children has jumped since the Great Recession forced Americans to rethink living on their own.
