Making your dream home a reality can be an exciting adventure. Unlike purchasing an already existing house, the custom home that you are in the process of building can be unlike anything else – and it can carry your personal touches, literally from the foundation to the roof. But, while your new home may ideally fit your current wants and needs, if you intend to reside there for a long period of time, it can be extremely beneficial to make sure that it will also fit your requirements down the road.
For instance today, due in large part to advances in medical technology, people are living longer than ever before. Because of this increased longevity, it is possible that you could spend 20, 30 or more years in retirement. And, provided that your health remains stable, you could end up spending many more decades in your home – as long as you have the features that you need.
For example, installing grab bars in the showers and tubs can make it much easier to remain independent. Likewise, by making sure that cabinets are reachable from the position of a wheelchair, you won’t have to make many major adjustments if this is the case in the future.
Even just a few slight modifications can make the difference between remaining in your current home, or having to move to a place that is easier to get around in – and by planning ahead now, you can move seamlessly ahead without a great deal of disruption or modification.
