HOME REMODELING – AGING IN PLACE
Designing for the Americans with Disabilities Act
We are Certified Aging in Place Specialists
As you approach a remodeling project, especially for your home’s kitchen or bathroom, it’s important to consider not only your current wants and needs but also updates that will improve your quality of life further down the road. Think about Universal Design features that will allow you to age gracefully in your home and maintain your independence. Aging is inevitable, but disability within your home is not. With Aging in Place and Universal Design concepts, we can eliminate disability through design.
Universal Design philosophy considers all stages of life. It incorporates adaptable design to accommodate the short and tall, young and elderly, handicapped and healthy. There are many simple and subtle design ideas you can incorporate in your home remodeling project with beneficial value for all. Here are a few Universal Design Concepts:
- Countertops at various heights will accomodate people of various heights.
- Lever handles on faucets and doors will aid children and those with arthritis.
- Non-slip flooring is safer for everyone.
- Adjustable light levels, from dim to very bright, will adapt for those with light sensitivity and people with aging eyes.
- Lowered light switches will ease reach for children and people in wheelchairs.
- Raised outlets will reduce bending.
- Install grab bars in your bathrooms, or at least the blocking to install them if or when needed.
- Roll away storage under your stovetop and sink can easily be pulled out to allow knee space for wheel chair access.
- Wall ovens installed at 30”-40” above the floor will alleviate bending over a hot oven. Be sure to have counter space nearby for resting hot dishes.
According to AARP, most Americans prefer living in a familiar place, their home, throughout their later years in life. As Certified Aging inPlace Specialists, we are familiar with the guidelines laid out by the ADA and can assist you in making your home a comfortable, healthy place to live, independently, for years to come.
DECK DESIGN AND OUTDOOR KITCHENS
Adding a deck is one of the top five home improvement projects when it comes to getting the most bang for your buck and recovering the costs when you sell your home (according to the Remodeling magazine’s Cost vs. Value Report). Homeowners who add a deck to their property recoup nearly 81 percent of the project’s cost when they sell the home.
Considering building a deck?
The first step is to have a vision. Are you envisioning an outdoor entertainment hub for frequent barbecues and gatherings? Do you dream about having a hot tub or fire pit? Or do you simply seek a place to relax at the end of the day? In addition to the intended purpose for your deck; how big you would like it to be, the size of your budget, and how many people you plan to accommodate all come into play. Where you locate the deck is also important, especially if you plan to use it as an extension of your indoor living space.
Cooking on the grill is a great way to entertain company or just feed the family without heating up the kitchen. But scurrying back and forth from the kitchen to the patio can get old. Make grilling easier and more pleasant by putting together an outdoor kitchen.
We will help you through the whole process:

Lights are available in a variety of finishes to match your décor if they’re visible. Lights can be positioned straight down at the work surface or directed toward the backsplash for a more ambient glow. And if you have display shelves or glass cabinet fronts, lights can be installed under shelving for accent lighting.

GREEN DESIGN Remodeling
A Design/Build Company Specializing in Innovative Design and Quality Craftsmanship
Designing with Green in Mind
GREEN DESIGN Remodeling | Welcome to our Green Page! As Dan McLeister on HGTVpro.com says… “Green remodeling is simple. The idea is to change the world, one room at a time.” But where do you start? And where do you draw the line? When it comes to green remodeling, keep in mind that you don’t have to do everything, but everything that you do helps. While there is some cost difference, many manufacturers are competing to meet the demands of the green building trend, bringing consumer costs down. We are a green certified remodelers and are actively taking classes to continue our education on the new and constantly changing processes and products offered within Green Design.
Currently, there are certain tax credits offered for energy efficient remodeling. You can receive a per-item credit for 30% of the cost, with a lifetime ceiling of $1,500.
– What Qualifies? Installation costs are covered for some improvements, including installation of HVAC (heating, ventilation and cooling) systems, solar water heaters, solar panels, geothermal heat pumps, wind-energy systems and fuel cells. For windows, doors, insulation and new roofs, only the cost of materials is eligible for the credit.
-Not covered. A number of simple steps homeowners can take to improve energy efficiency are not eligible for the tax credit. However, you may be able to find mail in rebates for such items here. This includes energy star refrigerators, dishwashers, clothes washers, room air conditioners, insulated siding, ceiling fans, programmable thermostats, electric storage-tank water heaters and electric tank less water heaters.
So, What Makes a Home “Green”?
- Energy Efficiency – Use Energy Star rated appliances and systems for your kitchen and home. Also, consider replacing your incandescent bulbs with compact fluorescent. Use LED lights for under cabinet lighting, recessed lighting, and pendant lights. These measures will not only minimize your environmental impact, but also minimize your electrical and power bills.
- Water Efficiency – Energy Star and WaterSense labeled products for your kitchen and bathrooms, such as dishwashers, washing machines, and toilets, will greatly reduce your water consumption. Also consider low-flow faucets and dual flush toilets.
- Resource Efficiency – Take advantage of natural light through plenty of Low-E windows throughout your home. These keep heat in during the winter and heat out during the summer. Use materials made with recycled content like carpet, quartz surface, and tile. Install finishes made from rapidly renewable resources like bamboo and linoleum.
- Indoor Air Quality – Did you know that you are exposed to more harmful pollutants indoors than outside? Poor circulation and high levels of VOCs found in paints, cleaners, furniture, cabinetry, etc. lead to poor indoor air quality. Incorporate appropriate HVAC systems. Circulate fresh air through your house. Use low-VOC paints and low or no-formaldehyde cabinetry.
