Don't miss this one on the Lakeland Builders Association Parade of Homes!
Melody Fehling, Thelen Total Construction writes about: "What is Lifelong Design? Also called Universal Design and Aging-In- Place; it's design that is convenient for everyone. It's a design philosophy that recognizes the need for a home environment to accomodate people of all ages and abilities and strives to remove obstacles to ease of use. Some solutions you'll see in our Parade Home are simple such as wider doorways, hallways and lever handle locksets. Other solutions you'll see in the Parade Home anticpate future possible needs, such as the new Kohler rising wall bath tub and elevator (DME Access). We believe that these solutions will become standard custom home building practice. People today want to remain in their current home. By being pro-active about Lifelong Design during the design phase, you can enjoy your home for many, many years!"
