An overwhelming majority of Americans want to remain in their homes for as long as possible, but lack awareness of home and community-based services that make independent living possible.
Cotner Building Company takes pride in always expanding their knowledge of building techniques. It is a fact that the largest segment of the U.S. population is the Aging-In-Place or Empty Nester client. That is the reason Cotner Building Company continually expands their design knowledge of building scopes to specialize in offering a product that is suited for this client. They want to service consumers who want to make their house a home for a lifetime – regardless of one’s age, or functional abilities.
Owner John Cotner is the only active custom home builder in Idaho to be certified as an Aging-In-Place specialist so they can offer the best service to their clients. Having this certification helps them be specially trained in:
– The unique needs of Empty Nester clients;
– Home modifications that can help people continue living independently in their homes longer;
– Common remodeling projects;
– Solutions to common barriers.
As a trained CAPS professional, Cotner Building Company seeks the knowledge of the strategies and techniques for designing and building aesthetically pleasing, barrier-free living environments. They want to go beyond design to address the codes and standards, common remodeling projects, product ideas and resources needed to provide comprehensive and practical aging-in-place solutions.
