What Houzz contributors are saying:

Afresh HomeAfresh Home, a demonstration project built through a team effort that included the British Columbia Institute of Technology, is designed to adapt to families’ changing needs; it can easily be converted from a four-bedroom, single-family home to a duplex with two bedrooms per unit. Occupants can also add an office or a large first-floor master suite at the front or back of the house. Large bedrooms can be converted into two rooms, with wide doorways that make moving furniture easy. Stacked closets on the first and second floors can be converted into an elevator shaft for aging residents or people with disabilities.

Fantastic options for expanding or declining numbers of family members. Also, great idea for rental property!
