New Shared Living House Plans

More and more we're being asked about communal living and shared living house plans. We've got two new ones to share!

Communal living options expand

More folks are reaching out to us about house plans with some communal living component, as well as the option for fully separate guest suites.

Such suites can be used as an income / rental component, or just to give guests and the main occupants privacy.

We have heard you loud and clear and have designed two new options, based on our original Frontenac plan.

The Frontenac was designed for two families to live together, with separate sleeping / living quarters, and shared common spaces (kitchen, dining, as well as a shared great room).

We’ve taken the base Frontenac, retained the original features of the ground floor as described above, and added a completely separate guest unit on the upper level. In one plan, this is a one-bedroom apartment or unit with self-contained open plan kitchen, dining, and living space.

in the second plan, it’s a full two-bedroom apartment with all of the amenities in the one-bedroom version.

Shared living floorplan with separate unit

The beauty of a fully self-contained unit is the flexibility this offers, from accommodating guests or extended living to family, to providing a local rental option, to housing an Airbnb unit where you live.

Both of the separate units feature open plan living, comfortable bedrooms, smartly designed bathrooms, and storage space.

Shared living and common spaces

The ground floor of both of these new plans are based on the original Frontenac, which offered a layout for two small families or dual occupants.

Communal living may not be for you, but the economies that come from sharing a roof might be.

Don’t be shy; let us know if you like aspects of these plans, but need changes to make them work best for how you want to live.

We can change any of our plans, and we’re experienced with integrating physical accessibility features.

Please contact us to discuss your project!
