The dictionary defines Universal Design as “the use of products and environments to be usable by all people to the greatest extent possible.” This approach is not exclusive to Homeworks of Alabama. What is unique to us is the way we integrate Universal Design into the beauty of this special development.

We begin by incorporating no-step entry, one-story living, wide doorways and non-slip surfaces into the home. Then, we add stately columns, an inviting front porch and spacious interior spaces. With all of this thoughtful design, we ensure that the development will be a landmark in the community for years to come.
