About this Project:

Jerel and Elaine Merical found the perfect place to retire without going anywhere. When thinking about retirement, they came to the conclusion that they really liked their neighborhood and would love to have a “forever” home there, but that would require some renovating. They knew they would need to move the laundry to the main level, but soon additional questions about aging in place began popping up. We suggested the idea of an accessible / universal design that they hadn’t originally considered. After this conversation, the project grew to include much more than just getting the laundry upstairs. We enhanced the living space by removing a wall between the kitchen and living room as well as creating the ideal master suite. Maximizing the space was our biggest challenge; we didn’t add on, we just made better use of every inch.
