Remodeling Contractors / UNIVERSAL DESIGN
Live in place – with proper planning and remodeling of the home space.
When you hire a Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS) builder, you are buying a professional service in addition to the actual construction.
Home Remodel or New Construction.
Aging in Place Construction can incorporate universal design principles during original construction or later remodeling of the home to make our living spaces:
- Functional for everyone, regardless of age or ability
- Adaptable for future use and convenience
- More comfortable, thus improving quality of life.
Not every remodeling contractor understands the concept of aging in place construction or knows how to prepare a home for this transition. You will need to seek out a home remodeling contractor who has experience with building and remodeling for accessibility and safety.
A full bathroom Remodel starts with a complete design for the space and fixtures, taking into consideration aesthetics, accessibility and comfort.
To maximize access, for example, a wall-mounted sink can replace a traditional bathroom sink and vanity. Additionally, a shower with a walk-in entry applies the concept of universal design to the bathroom by providing easier access. Your walk-in shower should work with your bathroom’s overall design while still forming a clearly defined space. You can further create a focal point with a shower, using dramatic tile or glass accents.
Modifications Contractors / RETURN HOME SAFELY
To live in place most often requires home modifications when:
A traumatic event has created an immediate life change
Mobility is becoming limited due to the aging process
A chronic condition is worsening
Accessibility and Safety Assessment.
Before returning home from a hospital stay after a fall, or other new disability, some immediate home modifications can make a home more safe and accessible. We begin with an in-home assessment that includes a recommendation for short term modifications, and an estimate of costs.
When you hire a Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS) builder, you are buying a professional service in addition to the actual construction. Our expertise is in knowing what modifications need to get done and how best to do it, not just in doing the work.
Live in Place Designs is uniquely qualified to advise you about home modifications that will improve the safety and accessibility you require when dealing with a chronic condition, or after a change in your mobility. We begin with an in-home assessment that includes a recommendation for short term modifications, and an estimate of costs.

What Our Clients Say / Testimonials
Best contractors you will ever have. The addition they did for us was so perfect, it surpassed our expectations. Imagine that?
We have had plenty of contractors work for us over the years. Some good. Some not. Only Jim and Glenn sat with us at the beginning, analyzed what we wanted to do, and made suggestions on how the project would be better with their expert recommended changes.
Everything they did came out exactly as they told us it would. All their materials were of high quality and their work was flawless.
Very competent and reliable. Hiring them for another job for the 2019 season.
Dependable, caring, experienced craftsmen. A rare find these days.
No surprises or the usual excuses. Respectful and trustworthy. Enough said.
Lori was a great help to me…. through this very difficult time and decision making she was kind, considerate, knowledgeable, and instrumental.
I trust Lori 100% with my care, so much that I have listed her as an advocate for me in my will! She cares for people at a deep level and is one of the few that puts peoples’ well-being before profit.
At a very difficult, dark time…. with little help or hope for a successful outcome… I came upon Lori. She helped me not only professionally but emotionally… with knowledge and compassion. I will always be grateful. Thank you for you!
