Live In Place Designs / We help people in all ages

We ensure you can enjoy your home, your community, and your independence.

Our specialty is in working with clients to design homes for living with a disability, giving consideration to both short and long-term needs of the client. In order to do that most effectively it requires several conversations and back-and-forth on different design ideas, so that a detailed plan can be used in getting good bids from a contractor.

Handicap bathrooms or bathrooms for people with disabilities require an understanding of the disability as well as the ADA compliant measurements that are needed to make a bathroom wheelchair accessible down the road. In the long run this actually saves you money.

We both have our own contractors and work with other contractors in order to provide clients with competitive bids and provide them with the specialized skills needed for different types of bathrooms.
