This is America's, and the world's first universal designed, green, inclusive and healthy product, home plans book. Plans also include optional smart technologies and storm-panic safe rooms. Plans can be ordered, modified and built with your own specifications per your site requirements and building codes. "Invisible accessibility"designs are usable for people of all ages and abilities where they do not scream out ADA compliant. I am glad to work with you to create your own custom home design and construction plans.
The healthiest and most energy efficient homes are those that connect intimately with your own site, property and house orientation. A custom home design, based on the universal designing process utilizes the principles of universal design as active designing criteria.
I often say, "the plans are a good place to start". We can inter-mix parts of a plan from a couple plans, (if you wish) and adapt your plan, just for you. The plans are also helpful as a reference for bathroom and kitchen remodels and additions. The last 25 pages contain over 300 detailed space planning tips and specifications that are of great value to you when building new or remodeling an existing home.
Good communication is important for the success of every project and we can talk in person or electronically but mostly both. I hope to work with you and enjoy the information on this site. Its been viewed by over 600,000 people. Thank YOU! and happy 2020 new decade. Best, Charles.
