Beaver Builders has specialty training and hands on experience in the field of accessible housing, home modifications and project adaptations. Donny Mack has received technical training through the Certified Aging in Place Specialist (CAPS) courses. Aging in Place means clients don’t need to move from their homes in order to accommodate their changing needs. We will help identify, recommend, and offer attractive design solutions that create a safe and comfortable environment for individuals who want to age in place but…. are not experiencing health issues related to aging; or have a progressive or other condition that requires home modifications/equipment; or are dealing with an abrupt or traumatic health related change. We will work with the client to present various methods and techniques for modifying home design, from the perspective of new construction and retrofitting.
