This open plan bathroom alows for easy and independent use.
America's first universal designed and healthy home plans book, where all of the plans can be ordered for your own home construction. The plans are fully accessible and usable for people of all ages and abilities and they can be modified to suit you. We can work with you to create your own custom home plans, incorporating your ideas and specific site requirements. This is always an option, and what most people do.
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.
I enjoy old fashioned conversation (if and when you like) to develop trust, and believe is vital for the success of every project. Whatever communication works best for you,as it may be e-mail, works well for me too.
Book front Cover: All plans are designed for independent and healthy living.
