A combination of the sheer force of  curiosity and numbers “boomers” and older adults can set in motion a home design recalibration.

A dwelling design that serves - regardless of age or physical ability- can work across many generations. Is this a trend?Heads-up!The “boomers” are coming- the “boomers” are coming.

Age Friendly One Floor GREEN LivingAt least one aspect known as “aging-in-place” is getting to be a big deal these days. It is significant -and relevant - and quite possibly fueled by the very human desire most of us share-
to remain as independent as possible in a lifelong home.

The appeal is real: An easy-to-get-around-in place -universal design elements (both functional and gorgeous) that can benefit those who live there. I like to think that, at the heart of it all, designing for enduring excellence simply makes sense.  The outcome can translate “aging-in place” to “Aging in PALACE©”  

I’m not alone. According to the National Association of Home Builders, a burgeoning older adult and “boomer” population by that sheer force of  curiosity and numbers has an eye on the horizon.Recently, I got the bug to look into this for clients here in Asheville-  Here are a few of my findings and a

I was reading an article about this yesterday, janeAnne. It went into detail about designing and/or redesigning homes so that the older gen can stay in their homes.
