“Today more than ever people are living longer and most people want to continue to live in their own homes. Another phenomenon is that more generations are moving back together, therefore we see the need for building, remodeling and adapting homes to help all generations live together comfortably, safely and with style. It is for this reason that I felt it important for myself and our company to be on the leading edge of Universal Design. We are now able to educate and assist our clients in designing spaces that accommodate all of their needs regardless of age, size or physical abilities,” stated Randy.
