House Plans for
the Entire Family

Build a house everyone can share

LifeStage Home Designs incorporate the tenants of universal design to allow you to build a house with ease of access for anyone – regardless of age or ability. This means you'll have plans for a home without barriers or challenges that would prevent you, your children, or your parents from visiting or living together comfortably at home.

Think of the cost savings and peace of mind that come with knowing your parents can live with you, instead of having to go into a retirement home or care facility. With a LifeStage house design, you won't have to renovate to prepare your home for multiple generations: you'll already have the open concept floor plan, barrier-free layout and other amenities that help people of all ages and abilities feel welcome and comfortable.

When you purchase a LifeStage home design, you’re choosing a house plan that welcomes visitors and family members. You will save money, time and effort by building your dream home once, and you’ll have peace of mind knowing you will never have to do major renovations or move in order to accommodate aging parents or family members.

Universal design features for all ages & abilities

When you build with LifeStages designs, you won’t have to worry about ever adding ramps, moving bedrooms, or doing any major renovations. With LifeStages plans, you'll build a home suited for aging parents, children of differing abilities, and anyone who may visit or stay.
