A lifetime home, a home for the future
You don't find a pleasant place to live overnight. You should feel comfortable in the area, everything should be within easy reach, and fine neighbors are always welcome too. Once you have found the ideal location to build a home, it is also wonderful if you can live there for as long as possible. The perfect solution for this is a lifetime home. We will explain to you in this blog exactly what a lifetime home means and what the benefits are.
What is a lifetime home?
The name "life-proof" says it all. The home will last all your life. But the name does not refer to the material of the house. A life-proof home is built to provide you with all the comforts you need so that you can still live safely and comfortably in old age. This is reflected in several features.
A lifetime home is ground floor, has wide doors and spacious rooms, contains no thresholds, has electric cooking facilities and has electric control systems. This ensures that you do not have to climb stairs or put extra effort into household chores. This translates to a comfortable environment for you to enjoy. This will allow you to live independently for as long as possible and avoid unforeseen costs in the future.
A lifetime home brings many benefits, both for now and later. First, energy costs will drop significantly. Livingstone takes into account the new rules regarding energy-neutral construction. Our projects meet the Nearly Energy Neutral Buildings Standard. For example, your home will be equipped with good insulation materials, a ventilation system, solar panels and a heat pump. This results in a low energy bill at the end of the year. In addition, the house is equipped with spacious rooms. This not only has the advantage of having few obstacles later on, but also that the children can play safely in the house.
Furthermore, lifetime homes are also more low-maintenance. This is due to the use of new building requirements and materials. Finally, the biggest benefit is that you can enjoy your dream home for as long as possible and avoid surprises.
