OP, things will be okay! dont worry.
Your family will be fine with it, they will just need to accept it, just don't be a cunt about it, give them lee-way, don't go around making demands of them straight away, play it cool, don't be a stuck up transgirl who gives them a long complicated letter they'll never understand and definitely don't make demands of them, respect them whilst you're in their home.
you will be their son and their brother for a while, you cant change that over night, when i came out to my parents they were like "dont be daft" but i said "im not", they hated my guts, but i said i dont care what you call me or what you think of me, i know who i am and thats all that matters to me, so if you want to call me he, boyname etc, it hurts, but ill still be here, and when you come around and realise this isnt going away i wont hold anything against you.
The best thing you can do is show them your hand and stick with them. transition isnt all just about you, they are involved also. if they say "we dont want you living here if you do this" say fine, i just thought i could be honest with you for once, but i will wait till i move out to live comfortably. Still take your mones etc, if your parents read the paper ask for the real estate section, if you use your computer in a common living area make sure they see you looking for rooms.
The best thing you can do is slowly show them who you really are, dont go full creep, and start wearing mini skirts etc, start with a girl body wash or something, start wearing girls deodorant. just start little and every now and then show them a little more of who you are.
As i said, give them leeway, if they arent comfy with you dressing in obvious femme clothes around the house, say thats fine, and wear boyfriend jeans ( i guess a lot of guys wear skinny jeans, but if you dont already dont start with them) and a t-shirt or something and then maybe one day the t-shirt is a singlet, oops you forgot to put the t-shirt on! etc.
I hope you're getting me so far.
