Separate Entry, Key to Multi-Generation Living

That npr article had a poignant quote explaining why having a separate entrance or at least a solid wall (preferably sound-proof)  between you and the extended family is the sine qua non of multi-generational living.
"Our nerves are shot because we siblings, we love our family but we don't like living with them," Suckow says. "It's like one big holiday dinner that won't end. You can't go home after the turkey is carved."
Separate 2nd unit living: good for family. good for keeping your sanity.
