Cobb County HomesIt is not unusual for aging parents to move-in with their children, but these days they have some competition from the “boomerangs.” Boomerangs are adult children who move back-in with their parents following college to save up some money or to look for a job before heading out on their own. While these children have lived under the same roof as their parents not too many years ago, it is still an adjustment following the freedom of college. They still want their independence, so it is important that metro Atlanta home designs accommodate the boomerangs need for space. At Traton Homes, we have several floor plans that include flex spaces or bonus rooms that are perfect for boomerang children. Read More→
