Description of Accessible Property

Flexhouse takes a family from a starter home all the way to retirement with a flexible floor plan that adapts to changing situations - from birth to death, and across multiple generations. A regulation elevator shaft is concealed by three closets stacked on top of each other. The closet floors are easily removed for conversion to elevator shaft that runs from basement/garage to second floor. The 2nd floor bedroom's large closet is designed to easily convert to a kitchenette, transforming the 2nd floor into independent living space for a care-giver, elderly parent, or an adult child. There is an alcove bed that takes the place of a full sized quest bedroom to save space. The house is very energy efficient and has been awarded LEED Gold certification. It is passive solar as well as passive geothermal, saving from 60%-80% of your energy costs. The windows are triple pane.The beautiful hardwood floors were made from trees removed from the lot before construction. The house sits on a hill with a lovely view of Gages Lake from the second floor screened in porch. The house comes with boating, fishing, and beach rights on Gages Lake.
