The Next Generation of Homes is Multigenerational

By Paul Bielinski, CEO & VP

Keeping our eye on design trends is one of the most important ways we can continue building homes that fulfill the needs of a modern family. And one thing we’ve noticed is that more customers are asking for multigenerational accommodations.

Space for an aging parent, an adult child back from college, or anyone else that might be living with you. That’s why we’re now offering specially designed multigenerational suites on two Bielinski Homes floor plans, The Sophia and The Skylar. Here’s a little background on our multigenerational suites.


So what exactly is a multigenerational suite? And how is it different from just an extra bedroom? A multigenerational suite is a section of the home that allows aging parents or returning family members to live more independently. In our floor plans, it includes an oversized bedroom with a sitting area, a private bathroom, and a walk-in closet.

But beyond the square footage, a multigenerational suite also adds one important thing to your home: privacy. Whoever might be living in the suite needs their own space. And so do you! That’s why our multigenerational suites are more secluded to provide the independence that everybody in the home needs.


Adding multigenerational suites to our floor plans is not a full redesign. In both multigenerational floor plans we’re offering, only minimal changes were made from the original designs to add the extra functionality.

When adding a multigenerational suite to a floor plan, it’s important to consider who might be living in it. Often, multigenerational suites are for aging parents. And some aging parents have mobility issues. That’s why we ensure our suites are located on the first floor.


And there is also an overlooked value to adding a multigenerational suite onto a floor plan. By expanding your first floor, you also expand your basement. For instance, The Sophia plan goes from 1,818 square feet to 2,241 square feet. That extra space not only adds value to the home but will come in handy if you plan to finish your basement.



As I mentioned, customers have been asking for it. And some customers have even been opting for customized designs to include these spaces. So by creating Bielinski Homes floor plans that include multigenerational suites, we’re not only able to give customers what they want but also create a more cost-effective solution compared to a fully customized plan.

  • When we rightsized from our home of 43 years to a Bielinski Condo in Bay Pointe, our New Home Consultant answered all of our questions and communicated with us the entire way. We’re fully enjoying our beautiful new home and the condo community.
    John and Jean Jones
  • I’ve been so impressed and completely satisfied with the entire Bielinski building experience. From the initial sale and throughout the construction process I have appreciated Bielinski’s professionalism, craftsmanship, and follow-through.
    Heidi Hamilton
  • We are extremely happy with our new Bielinski Condo. It’s well-built and full of all the features we wanted in our home.
    Deborah and Brian Blackney
  • We chose Bielinski because they are a family-owned business and have been building in the Pewaukee area for a long time. The Clemont floor plan is just perfect for all of our family events and Packer parties.
    Bob and Darla Landgren
  • We couldn’t be happier with our new home! The entire process was fantastic. Everyone was so responsive and quick to help. Bielinski’s knowledge of the industry was invaluable. We recommend Bielinski to anyone looking for their next home.
    Mike and Kristin Smith
  • We had a really good experience with Bielinski from start to finish. Everyone was responsive and reliable. Now we are enjoying life in our new home.
    Peter Holzwart and Therese Gaynor-Holzwart
  • Once I got settled in, I knew I was exactly where I belong. Without Bielinski’s knowledge and communication, I would still be questioning whether I should build at all. Thanks to the entire team that made this all possible.
    Barb King
  • We have just purchased our third Bielinski Home in the last 22 years, a Bielinski condo. We have found that Bielinski Homes builds quality homes for fair prices. The craftsmanship of construction and finishing is exceptional, plus they make the buying and building process easy with great customer experience. We would strongly recommend a Bielinski Home.
    Jerald and Jeanne Filut
  • We absolutely loved working with Bielinski Homes — the kindness and knowledge they shared sold us on wanting to move to our new neighborhood. We were worried about moving. But we had no doubts in our minds after speaking with our New Home Consultant about the community and the neighbors. We couldn’t be happier with our new home and new neighborhood.
