Home Planning Insight Starts With Web Applications

ne is talking about. Home planning insight starts with web applications. Most people design their home renovation or new construction only considering present family size and living arrangements not planning for retirement.

Why not consider some form of a “Universal or Lifetime” design.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

A design that will suit young, middle age or empty nesters. One home, but design revisions as the years go by allowing Lifetime living stability..

Example – A bonus room design used for entertaining suitable for young couples.

Example – Later convert bonus room for teenagers to couple of bedrooms.

Example – Elderly can use a shelf by the door for packages, also better outdoor lighting to get you from your car to the door.

Focusing on the thought of staying in the same home for many years is difficult. But the facts are moving in that direction.

According to research by the American Association of Retired Persons:

The American Association of Retired Persons says that nearly 90 percent of seniors want to stay in their own homes as they age.

The National Association of Home Builders, NAHB predicts that “aging in place” remodeling market to be $20-$25 billion. That’s about 10 percent of the $214 billion home improvement industry.

WHEN SHOULD YOU START ORGANIZING THIS PLAN

Too early to think this should apply? Consider how many folks struggle with bouts of arthritis at an early age. If you fell and broke a leg, how easy would it be to get up and downstairs in your house? Perhaps you have aging parent or relative who is facing these challenges who may need to move in with you.

Innovation in technology now allows us to study all these different scenarios by using computer applications.

Imagine having a home that a certain living space could be enjoyed as a nursery, then designed into a bedroom, then into an office or into a bonus space, or other possibilities.

Primary consideration should remain to capture the view of your family 5, 10, 20, 30 years in the future.

Nothing is perfect but planning and designing for the future is a gigantic step.

THIS IS WHERE TODAY`S TECHNOLOGY IS IMPORTANT.

Besides normal building technology such as computer systems, wireless, home high speed internet, etc.

We now have a number of simple to use personal home building web apps.

From design apps to construction apps to expense apps, let your imagination go wild. If you are going to spend 30 to 40 thousand on a remodel or 200k on a new home you need to spend 100 dollars on a web app remembering that planning insight starts with design web applications.
