That is going to be the trend as multi-genrational housing becomes the norm in the coming years as the younger generations cannot afford the high home prices and the grandparents also move in. The Waltons style will be back.

@talk72000,
I proposed something like that on a nytimes housing/suburban design thread comment section - that a number of the now abandoned housing areas could be retrofitted with this in mind - perhaps adding a second floor kitchen, for example - removing a house or two for park/bbq area/community center/small corner store. Houses are moveable, and maybe rearrangement could work in some of those spread out suburban desolation zones. Well, this is all pie in the sky talk, but given the extent of these zones, some rethinking is necessary, if not my own takes on it all. Goes without saying that adequate transportation other than cars would be a good idea.

@ossobuco,
The housing scenario is definately going to change. Changes that allow reconfiguration of housing units would be good as it maximizes choice at low cost.

@JTT,
Then there is more variety in opinions. It enlivens the discussions.

It is not my idea. I merely posted this guy's creative design.

Shotgun shack redux: mortgage-free in 320 square feet

It is like living in an 32-foot RV except it is not on the road.
