We tend to think of ourselves as forever young,  but the years catch up with us surprisingly fast and, before you know it, the stairs take longer, the microwave seems to be higher, and door knobs seem to be harder to open.  A remodeling project to get your house ready for aging can be simple and planned.  It can be as simple as changing door knobs to levers and light switches to rockers or you can start thinking of changing door widths and entries.  There are a myriad of changes you can make to be able to stay in your house as long as physically possible.  Why not enjoy life for a very long time!
