Jessica Bruno Four Generations One Roof

I am from a small town in Massachusetts and love sharing my unique multigenerational living arrangement, which started in 2008. I am a regular busy mom, who helps others bring affordable style to their home and teaches the art of layering a room.  I have always had a passion for making my home comfortable, stylish and always done on a budget.

Prior to starting my blog in 2011, I had no experience with social media and didn’t even have a Facebook account. I am a self taught mom blogger who stumbled upon blogging while searching for Star Wars party ideas for my son’s 5th birthday party in 2011.
 
 

How It All Started

In 2008 my family moved into my childhood home, owned by my parents.  The original plan was to stay for a short time while we looked for a new home but we never left. Within a couple years, my grandparents (my dads parents) also moved in.

In 2011, Four Generations One Roof was born by accident which quickly became a popular spot for family, friends and new readers to visit on a daily basis. My dad, my grandfather and I  started renovating our home together and the blog became a popular hub for DIY interior design projects, DIY home renovations, room makeovers on a budget, family recipes and how to successfully live in a Multi-Gen Home while maintaining privacy, style and your sanity.

In 2018, a lot changed under the roof of Four Generations One Roof. My grandmother passed away on the eve of Thanksgiving, 2017 and my grandfather became a permanent resident at a local Nursing Home near my home in late 2017. My grandfather had severe Dementia which left us unable to care for him at home.
 
In February 2018, my parents  sold my childhood home . My now ex-husband and I along with my parents purchased a new house 1/2 mile down the street with more land, one kitchen and a home conducive to now three generations under one roof.
 

Shortly after purchasing the new home, my grandfather passed away and my marriage ended.
