What is a Mother-Daughter House?

A mother-daughter house refers to a single-family home that has been modified to accommodate two separate living spaces, typically with shared common areas like entrances or laundry rooms, but also with distinct amenities for independent living, such as separate kitchens and bathrooms. This arrangement allows for close family members to live near each other while maintaining a degree of privacy and independence.

These homes are often used to provide space for aging parents (hence "mother") while being close to their children and grandchildren ("daughter"), or to support adult children transitioning to independent living. The specific layout and features can vary widely, but the key characteristic is the ability to house multiple generations or family units under one roof with both shared and private living spaces.
