A Lifetime Home is personally convenient for anyone. MORE than multi-generational or "livable for a lifetime", everything in design and function is EASY, flexible and adapts to you no matter what happens (i.e. you can accomplish things, get around and care for yourself and others in multiple ways). How does your home measure to this standard?

Watch Design Consultant Amy Turnage describe how UD = Easy.

Any "house" can be a Lifetime Home. Regardless of square footage or type, a Lifetime Home is proactively designed and built so that you and your family can remain there for as long as you choose because you have efficient, socially sustainable options for using the property (i.e. the house adapts to you). A Lifetime Home is the opposite of Peter Pan Syndrome, which produces houses designed and built as if nobody changes, for the average person of an average height, age and mobility. A Lifetime Home is not a style but a characteristic or essence, a smart, high performance house regardless of climate or geographic area.

Our comptroller, Leslie Velasquez enjoys communicating with people. She just prefers speaking personally or on the phone, not in front of a camera, so the television commercial her family did for their dentist remains burned into her memory, and getting her to participate in THIS video was like pulling teeth.
