A family with teenaged children and aging parents had the resourceful idea to create a residence for the elder generation on the back part of their lot. The new residence includes a top floor balcony, an indoor garage and an indoor passage to the existing residence.

This project demonstrates the potential to turn a single family house into a multi-generational family compound by extending the existing building.
