Bring your family along with you when choosing a floor plan. Don’t make the mistake of keeping your floor plan decision making to yourself. If you are able to walk through physical models of homes before deciding on a floor plan, consider bringing your family along for the decision. It may help you see the reaction of your roommates, kids, significant other or others who will share the home with you. Being the “sole decision maker” can sometimes backfire on you – instead have your family weigh in on the important decision of choosing the ideal floor plan for you all!
Metal Roofs. The metal roof, formerly relegated to rural reaches, is infiltrating suburban housing. Even corrugated and standing-seam metal roofs are receiving attention. See Plan 933-5.

While we’re at it, consider making the hallways and doorways generously sized. Retiring Boomers will certainly appreciate the efforts to make the house easy to get around in and easy to use. So make sure there are features such as zero threshold showers, well placed and secure grab bars and easily accessed storage. Plan 481-7, shown above, incorporates these types of features with one floor living, large doors to generous outdoor spaces as well as the split bedroom floor plan making it ideal for a retired Boomer.
If phase one is successful, CCSS may consider adding an additional phase of homes for families in the future.
