Penny, what a smart home builder to incorporate universal design in his homes. I love all of these features and I'm sure as the baby boomers age, the demand will build. Excellent information.

Debbie - Unfortunately it can be very hard to find features like these.  We'll work with each buyer to make sure the home is exactly what they need - and within their budget.
