102 plan book front cover: all plans are designed for independent and healthy living.
This is America's first universal designed and healthy home plans book. Plans can be ordered and built for your own home. The plans are fully accessible and usable for people of all ages and abilities and they can be modified to suit. I am glad to work with you to create your own custom home design and construction plans, while integrating your ideas along with the specific site requirements.
The healthiest and most energy efficient homes are those that connect directly to your own property, orientation and neighborhood. A custom home design, based on the universaldesign process that I utilize, takes the principles of universal design as guiding design criteria.
I often say, "the plans are a good place to start". I can adapt parts of a plan and layout from a plan in the book, adapting it into a home plan design specifically for you. The plans are also helpful as a reference for remodels and home additions. The last 25 pages contain over 300 detailed tips and specifications that will be of great value to you whether you are building new or remodeling.
I enjoy personal conversation or electronic communication if you prefer. Good communication is important for the success of every project.

Universal Designed "Smart" Homes for the 21st Century,
102 Plans you can order and build.
Order this innovative home plan and design book while we still have them. The same used book is selling at double the cost,and above on Amazon. When resellers say they are new, they all originated from this website. We have also received reports that there are contraband phony copies circulating as the binding is inferior. So purchase the real thing. I will also be happy to sign it for you at no additional cost if you wish.
The cost here is only $97.95 plus $10.00 S&H. A new book costs $107.95 and up on amazon,but they are not "new" and are still second hand, as they all came from this site. We have also received reoports that some are pirated fake copies as the cover ink wears off. The originals here do not.
The total cost of $ 97.95 will be refunded to you,by me, Charles M. Schwab, if you order a plan from the book, or hire me to design a custom home. We only ship USPS priority mail, so you will have your book in 2 -3 days. You may also mail a check payable to: Life Span Home Designs LLC, 601 Brady St. Suite 301A, Davenport, Iowa, 86203 in the amount of $97.95 Thank you in advance for the book order.
