Home for the Next 50 Years

The exterior of the Home for the Next 50 Years

The Home for the Next 50 Years, designed and owned by John Salmen, AIA president of Universal Designers & Consultants, Inc., is a showcase for how universal design can be applied to an existing home to make it more convenient, comfortable and safe, allowing its occupants to age-in-place. “We eased the way people move around within the house, made the kitchen and bathrooms accessible and chose hardware and appliances for their efficiency, durability and ease of use."
