Thank You For Visiting Us

As an architect I have had a long interest in Universal Design. My research into this design approach led to the development of the home plans presented here. For those of you unfamilar with Universal Design, it can best be described as a holistic approach that shapes environments so they may be used by as many people as possible, regardless of age, ability, or circumstance, without discrimination and have lifetime value. We hope you will find one of our home plans that fits your needs.

– Gene Nicolelli

The Design Approach

Criteria that was established to create the building blocks for the home designs:

  • Incorporate Universal Design principles
  • Design more semi-custom and less mainstream plans
  • Provide for optional room addition and/or full basement
  • Floor plan with open, informal arrangement
  • Interior and outdoor “living spaces” both visually and physically connected
  • Exterior home elevation with familiar, inviting, yet unique architectural style

You Like What You See, But...

As with any homes designed for the general public you may not find exactly what you are looking for. However, if you find that one of our designs come close to what you need, but not exactly, we would be happy to modify the plan or design a custom home specifically for you. We invite you to contact us to discuss how we may assist you on your new home.
