Anyone's place Packed To The Rafters??

Sometimes for work I write these big sociological/people-type features. I do adore these stories, because you can really sink your teeth into them. But they can be tricky.

The one I am about to embark on tomorrow falls into that category. In fact, it has been keeping me awake in the middle of the night for a few weeks already!

I am doing a piece that requires me to find a couple of case studies of people who are living with three generations under one roof (granny flat counts!), a la the Packed To The Rafters TV show. I'm just interested in speaking to them about the dynamics of how they live, etc, etc.

Anyhow, if anyone can think of an Australian family living in this manner, let me know. Please! My email is spickette@acpmagazines.com.au and all suggestions are very welcome.

Sorry, no-one I'm afraid. Although you might be best to ask around the Greek or Italian community. My Greek girlfriend certainly expects to house her parents when they are older - it's just part of their deal.

Um dude - me? We've got mum, us and the boys and have done since Felix was about 6 weeks, so we're coming up to 9 years.
