House Plans
to Age in Place

Build your forever home

LifeStage Home Designs incorporate the tenants of universal design to allow you or your family members to live in place. This means your home is without barriers or challenges that would prevent you from living comfortably at home in a wheelchair, with a walker, or with additional family or medical care. This also means you can always have people visit your home or stay with you, regardless of their abilities.

When you purchase a LifeStage Home Design, you’re getting house plans for a home you may never have to leave. You are planning for the "what if's" in life before they ever happen. 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 renovate your home or leave it due to a change in ability or age by you, your partner or your family members.
