Real Estate Broker/Owner with REAL ESTATE RESOURCES & NETWORK 209970


Asheville “Boomers”  are keeping that REALLY Nice Kitchen in an Intergenerational Community, Downsizing, and smiling. Of course! Asheville is a progressive place.

There is a strong voice for sustainable excellence here. You may Small Elegant Kitchendiscover a fondness for locally grown and harvested organic produce and sweet kitchens in small spaces, (see photo)

and  living in a way that supports a gentle use of the land and community. As concerned real estate consultants, we are always on the lookout for thoughtful solutions.

Aging-in-Place in a Small Space (It’s Poetic!)

One idea comes from Andrew and Gabriella Morrison whose blog (and kitchen pictured here)  we are excited about.

The couple has a plan for construction technology that is  cost effective, healthy, energy efficient, and age-friendly home that  embodies "simple, uncluttered, environmentally sane, affordable. Conscious living."

In terms of "downsizing"  they suggest " moving towards living...with some fun, simple and easy downsizing techniques -Save Space.. By Creating A Paperless Office...Gratitude. Humility. Grace... and Getting Electricity From The Sun. "There is something miraculous about getting our electricity from the sun, " Gabriella says, " No utility bills. No inner guilt for tapping into the grid for power. Just good, clean, wholesome fun. For us going solar was a no brainer. "

Hi janeAnne, I'm all for aging-in-place but I'm not a fan of down-sizing. I prefer more space. As we get older, we have more things. After we stop working, we have more time. We use some of that time to spend with our families. We need space for them. we need more space for our hobbies which consume some of that extra time.

Our country is very large with a lot of unused or under-used space.
