In this April 2012 file 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 from Pensacola, Fla. had a multi-generational home under construction at the time, with plans to 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 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.
