Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS)

Michael Allen Homes is a certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS) Home Builder. We are certified and educated in building an accessible home with unique features to fit your specific needs. Our CAPS certification offers our clients what they need most: reassurances that we can guide them to make the design choices that will help them stay in their homes safely and securely. You are never too young to build a more accessible home. An accessible home does not have to look any different than that of any other custom home. Some common features that are included in an accessible home are open floor plans, zero entry doors, curbless showers, zero entry pools, wider doorways, and pocket doors. In addition, the CAPS certification helps make our clients’ homes more “visitable.” Even if the homeowners do not think they need additional lighting, grab bars, and other home modifications for their own use, their family members and visitors can benefit from the simple alterations. Your home will be designed to meet your specific needs while in keeping with the feel and warmth of a custom home. Building an accessible home means we will guide the homeowner through the design of their home in order to help them safely and comfortably live well in ones’ home. Being CAPS certified helps us help our clients make the right choices, and it gives more security when designing your custom home.

Our Style

If you study a builder’s homes closely enough you’ll likely begin to recognize a common theme or style if you will to their homes. Of course every builder aims to build to the client’s specific tastes and desires, though undoubtedly the builder’s style will show through to some degree. My personal preference is to build homes versus houses. Houses are built to show where homes are built to live. I want each home to uniquely meet the client’s needs – both present and future, to accommodate their lifestyles, and most importantly to create memories and share life with those who matter most in their lives. While this style may not have a formal name I like to think it exists in each home we build.
