UNIVERSAL DESIGN OPTIONS
Universal Design is a home-design approach created with all stages of life and abilities in mind. With this concept, each aspect of a home can be built to be easily accessible, convenient, and comfortable. From those who have just become parents, to those who are ready to retire, Universal Design offers features like wider hallways & doorways, lever handles, accessible ramps and lifts, low maintenance landscaping, and roll-in spa showers with grab bars to make daily activities simple and comfortable for everyone.
Universal Design is for forward thinking people who want to be able to stay in their homes longer and protect their investment from becoming functionally obsolete. When Universal Design is well done, it is not only invisible, it is transparent.
How can you be sure your builder is experienced with Universal Design?
Ask to see your builder’s CAPS or CAASH certification. With Ed Nikles Custom Builder, Inc., Ed Nikles Jr. is a Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS), and he is the only Certified Active Adult Specialist in Housing (CAASH) in Northeastern Pennsylvania.
