(WBAY) -- There's a new type of housing to keep your family members close and safe as they age.
It's called Linked Living and it's basically a cottage that attaches to your house.
The public will soon be able to check out a design by Seniors First Remodeling in Appleton.
Linked Living homes attach directly onto an existing home or garage.
The placement and designs can be customized.
"We just want to let everyone know this is an option for living. Family living, living with friends as you get older or, if you have disabilities, to stay at home longer," said Tom Cops, the owner of Seniors First Remodeling.
There will be an open house starting Monday to check out the first home.
