Considerations When You Have Close Neighbors

Space is a premium in a lot of places nowadays.  With new construction for roads, offices and homes builders are looking to maximize space and revenue.  This is why when it comes to multifamily housing construction, many considerations need to be put into place so everyone is comfortable.

Flipped layouts

One important thing that you need to do is have a flipped layout.  What this means is that you don’t want to have bathrooms butting up against each other or have bedrooms on a thin wall.  You want to have a layout where everyone has their own privacy level from others in the same complex.  If you don’t have this, then people will hear everything that everyone is doing which is not a desirable situation.

Separate power connectors

When we have a multifamily home, we want to have the power separated.  If you have power being shared it can lead to a lot of issues when it comes to paying the bill.  Many will argue that they didn’t use that much power or water or whatever other resources are available.  This can lead to a lot of feuding between neighbors.

Respect each other’s space

Simply because you are neighbors doesn’t mean you have to be friends.  Don’t be going over and asking to borrow a cup of sugar or some eggs on a constant basis.  Some people like the small space and their privacy and don’t want to be bothered.  Learn early on and set up some guidelines so everyone can live in peace.

Notify each other of change

If there is going to be a change or if someone is going to have a party or company, let the other family know.  IF there is going to be a disruption in the routine give them enough time to adjust.  This is a great way to keep relations civil.
