Baby boomers wanting to be near grandchildren. College graduates moving back home. Older folks needing help from younger family members. Extended families spending summers together. Whatever the situation, the overall idea is the same: Families more than ever are reaching across generations to create homes together. 
Regardless of the price of homes in Vancouver, we are noticing more than ever the importance of a basement suite to be incorporated into the home. New home owners are either preferring to have their in-laws live with them in order to help with the childcare, a live-in nanny or using the suite to supplement the costs associated with owning the home.
