THE NEW RETIREMENT – AGE PROOFING YOUR HOME

Sea Pointe Construction President Andrew Shore was recently asked by Robert Margetic, host of the web radio show “The New Retirement”, to chime in on Aging-In-Place and some clever ideas to help remodel your home to keep you living there for many years to come. In this episode Andrew explains Sea Pointe’s design/build concept and its advantages for those looking to take on a remodel involving Universal Design and Aging-In-Place. Mr. Margetic also asks Andrew about some remodeling ideas that can improve safety and functionality in a home remodeling project. Andrew mentions multiple suggestions one being lighting.  “A good lighting design is really critical, and a lot of times its not just inside the home, but on walkways from the street to the home, so you avoid the trip and falls.” He also talks about being conscience of selecting color contrasting materials,  grab bars, floor texture, and more.

Andrew Shore was quoted in Qualified Remodeler and For Residential Pros commenting on the remodeling design workshops Sea Pointe Construction organizes and hosts throughout the year. Each month the design/build firm holds a ‘Remodeling 101′ educational seminar in a different city within Orange County, Calif. The workshops help homeowners to understand key design and construction basics before starting their dream kitchen remodel, bathroom remodel, room addition or whole home refresh. The workshops are also meant to encourage guests’ to think outside-the-box by displaying creative ideas, in addition to showcasing some of the firm’s remodeling projects before and after pictures.

According to Shore, the workshops typically draw around 50 attendees, although some have attracted as many as 90 or more.There also is a residual effect, he adds. Over the next six to 18 months, we will continue to receive calls from past attendees.”
