Did you know that there are 3.3 million young adults still living at home?
The parent/child relationship dynamic changes considerably when they return home from university. The often said phrase "our house, our rules" doesn't hold quite the same weight anymore, and "in bed by ten" soon becomes "home by dawn."
The child whose belongings fitted into the back of the car when you drove them to halls for the first time, is now a young adult, and as adults, they have all the extra material possessions amassed whilst living away from home.
The result is a cramped bedroom and a home that starts to feel like an over-booked hotel at peak season. It's clear that you're going to need more space than ever. As they said in Jaws "We're gonna need a bigger boat!"
This was something that our client, Adrian in Colliers Wood decided to do when his daughter returned home from university.
Rather than move out of the family home of 20 years, Adrian opted to build a new master bedroom with an en-suite. He now has a beautiful bedroom with a Juliet balcony and his family happily enjoys more spacious living. It all goes towards a more harmonious household and no more bathroom disputes in the morning.
