Factors that in influence the way we look at projects are constantly changing. For
instance 50 years ago no one built a home more than 750 sf in size. Today it is not
uncommon to see homes being built that are 3,000 to 4,000 sf. There are two things
these day that have dramatic effect our ability to sustain our lifestyle. Those
two things are the cost of energy, and an ageing population along with all the implications
of growing old. As time goes on those factors become more and more important to
consider in the choices we make for
supporting our lives. Today a competent contractor must be at least familiar with
best practices in these two areas. That is why we are providing reliable reports
on both subjects, and offer free and helpful consultation should these items be important
Two Things To Consider!
Why Aging in Place
A significant concern as people grow older is that they may have to leave their home.
This would mean leaving behind a comfortable setting familiar community and many
memories. In addition a certain amount of control is lost when one leaves home. This
"control" provides the underpinning to our feelings of dignity, quality of life and
independence. One's home is a strong element in that sense of security.

In fact an AARP survey found this number to be greater than 80% of seniors. This
"stay at home" approach is also known as "Aging in Place" Several reasons are cited
for this strong Aging in Place preference. For a list of ideas that may serve your
