LifeStage Home Designs incorporate the ideals of universal design, meaning every home should be accessible, usable and welcoming to all people, regardless of age or ability. Our ready-to-build home plans are designed for all abilities, allowing you to live and age in place, share a home with multiple generations, or feel secure in your home’s resale value.
When you purchase one of our home plans, based on the principles of universal design, you will have a home with an open-concept floor plan that is free of barriers, welcoming to all people, and can truly be your forever home. Should your abilities or your family members’ abilities ever change, you won’t have to renovate or move out of your home. So settle in and get comfortable – because you can choose to live here as long as you’d like.
With a LifeStage design, you'll save money by planning ahead (avoiding major future renovations), and have a home that works for everyone (plenty of room without barriers). It’s a home design for all of us.
A well designed, accessible home can be purchased by any type of family. Build now for a home that will resell well later.
