Why can't Boomers design good homes?

Yo Dawg, I herd you like home additions, so I put an addition on your addition so you can increase your home value while you increase your debt value.

Boomers are gonna expect you to be grateful to them if they pass on these Frankenstein houses, even if you cannot sell them and they're at the corner of nowhere and retiree street.

You don't have to take any hand-me-down if you can't afford maintaining it, you can legally reject becoming a beneficiary however it would likely go to whoever owns the lot on the property. But it is true that younger generations cannot afford these kinds of homes. They're typically renting out homes among themselves now days from what I heard.

The problem is that many of the starter homes that boomers owned in the 90s got "renovated" by owners LARPing as weekend contractors and removed them from the pool of small houses that young people can typically afford. Wages have been stagnant for quiet some time, so those 150K homes that boomers bought are now selling for 250-300K (or more).

Home Depot and Lowes got big in the 90s because of that trend, and so did 2nd mortgages.

Most new construction is geared towards building houses that sell at current prices and I've read that building starter homes is not currently profitable (after you take into consideration all the permits and zoning variances that are needed).

In most places, development will be relegated to big apartment complexes and Mcmansions.

I have never lived in an apartment, but I don't think it would be so bad as it was made out to me, by Boomers who said anyone who lived in an apartment is a poor person to be pitied. As long as there is some security like digital locks, and its more affordable, then I would be fine with "renting" bigger areas at parks or restaurants when I need them for an occasional party or event. I don't even need a living room anymore because I don't use my TV when the computer does much more.

>security like digital locks

You're kidding yourself if you think anything digital is 'secure', anything digital is hackable and exploitable. Some tech savvy burglars wouldn't have to make a sound breaking in.

I'd recommend two deadbolt locks, long strike plates with 3" screws for those deadbolts and a portable katybar. That would make you much more secure and very difficult to breach.

>"I always wanted a house big enough that my kids could be in their room screaming, and my wife could be in a room screaming, and I could be somewhere else and not hear any of them," he says. "And I think I have accomplished this with this house, because this house is so big that everyone has their own space."

No wonder big houses feel uncomfortable, stuffy and lonely compared to small comfy ones.
