Design for the future – a call to action


“Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.” ~ John F. Kennedy

If only we knew what to expect tomorrow we could make better decisions today. Our societal structure is changing. The economy has changed how we as families are able to survive. The baby boomer generation moving into retirement age is changing the needs of our built environment. Technology is altering what is possible.

A survey conducted by the PulteGroup in October, found that 15% of homeowners shared their homes with their parents, 32% expected their parents to move in eventually. And on the other side 14% of grown children share their house with an adult child who has moved back home, & 31% expect an adult child to move back in.

Is your house designed for people of any ability? Is your home designed to allow for flexibility in the future? Is your home adaptable to new situations? Now is the time to plan for the future.

“Change your life today. Don’t gamble on the future, act now, without delay.” ~ Simone de Beauvoir
