  planned to accommodate aging generations.
“People say, ‘We want a two-story home with bed- rooms upstairs, and kitchen and living room downstairs. I’m 44 years old, and if I built a house for myself today, I’d have at least one bedroom and bathroom downstairs,”
Try to make sure that ev- erybody in the family has his or her own space, but don’t forget to create areas where everybody can gather for family time and fun!
Child proofing is impor- tant if little ones will be grow- ing up in your house. For ag- ing eyes, adequate lighting is important. In bathrooms,
falls can be prevented with a series of safety measures. “When we design for aging in place, we recommend in- stalling 3-foot doors in case somebody needs a wheel- chair, and building with pro- visions for grab bars, bench seating, and a shower that somebody can easily get in and out of,” Vasconcellos says.
Reduced mobility makes it hard for older folks to get outside safely. Create accessible outdoor areas with ramps equipped with handrails. Make sure they’re shaded and protected from the elements.
Thanks to quality con- struction and excellent customer service, Atlas has been voted “Hawaii’s Best” contractor for the past nine
years in Honolulu Star-Ad- vertiser’s People’s Choice Awards. Through a careful planning process that in- cludes monthly seminars, open houses that showcase projects in their finishing stages, and multiple meet- ings to gather specific in- formation about the fam- ily’s lifestyle and needs, Atlas Construction consistently meets and exceeds expec- tations with its projects.
As a certified Aging In Place/Universal Design com- pany, Atlas helps families plan for future generations.
“When we design a home, we ask a lot of questions,” Vasconcellos says. “Learning how the family will use the house today, tomorrow and in the future helps us build design options for them. I think we’re experts in under- standing how people live.”
