Part 1: Motivations & Getting Started
The Boehm Family wanted more than anything to create closeness and housing security for their family long term. Paul and Rosa wanted a place not only for themselves to retire into when the time was right, but a place for their daughter Teresa and her husband, Rigo, to start a family.
Like many families looking into backyard homes, the Boehms have a multigenerational plan in place. Their plans cover multiple scenarios including aging-in-place, providing a home for their daughter, son-in-law and their growing family. As an educator, Paul understands the challenges of housing costs in the Bay Area. Teresa, a special needs educator, is feeling the pinch even more.
With two independent, comfortable homes on the property, the Boehm’s property can now support multiple, independent families, with varied needs while providing everyone in the family a comfortable way to be close and grow together. For the Boehm family, an ADU is the perfect solution.
