SUSTAINABLE  EXCELLENCE



Perfect Nest

Do you love the idea of sustainable excellence - enduring qualities that incorporate universal design elements - that can work for all who live and visit ?

If you have a friend or relative who might feel more comfortable visiting you if your home were more accessible- you can imagine how important selecting  people-inclusive elements is.  Mark Nepo wrote...

“It was a very small thing, watching a robin carry a twig too big for its nest. It tried once, then twice, to use it, and somehow, with its very small bird brain, it knew it was no good. It simply flew off and picked another.So often what we want is like that twig [and we]…hold on to something that can’t complete our nest….”

E V E R Y B O D Y


The "right" living space for all  requires careful consideration

of building strategies to make that personal castle a comfortable, healthy and efficient place into which you and  family can nestle- possibly for a lifetime…planning for and creating something that fits. Possibly it comes down to a simple understanding of  solutions in  appropriate building and maintenance.



Wheelchair Accessible

One of the strategies for sustainable excellence is  wheelchair accessibility, not only in the interior design-- but out-of-doors as well!


The Perfect Nest- Something That Fits- Appropriate

If you demand sustainable innovation and enduring excellence, and plan for independence at home, that could mean you expect high performance building strategies to make your perfect nest a comfortable, healthy and affordable place in which to live.

Implement Strategies for Sustainable Excellence

As " boomers"  and post 50 adults plan for and create  "forever homes" - we can implement strategies to reduce energy and water usage, promote renewable energy use, help protect the land and natural resources where the home is built, and reduce pollution and the waste of natural resources during the manufacturing and construction phases and throughout the life of our now "finely-feathered" living spaces.
