Although it’s never too early to think about the future, many of us take for granted that we will, in fact, grow older. In fact, the number of Americans over age 65 will double from today’s 35 million to 70 million by 2030.

And the overwhelming majority says they want to continue living in their homes indefinitely – regardless of the physical and healthcare challenges this may eventually present.

Universal design is fast becoming a way of life. By utilizing innovative and smart design, and incorporating the Seven Principles of Universal Design, SCH builds homes ensuring generations of all ages remain independent – without sacrificing the beauty, luxury and comfort of a contemporary home.
