How to Make a Custom Home Your Dream Retirement Home


One of the main advantages of building a new home is the opportunity to live in an area you love. During retirement, the best schools and a short commute are no longer high on the priority list.

So, what do baby boomers, those planning their retirements, and active retirees look for in a location? In a word, roots.

To illustrate, the Better Homes and Gardens® Real Estate survey found many baby boomers want to remain in a familiar place. In fact, of those surveyed who were not already retired, 72 percent planned to retire in the same state in which they currently resided. Maybe this means building a new home on your own land. Or perhaps you would prefer to work with a reputable home builder and find a community that’s right for you.  Either way, don’t settle for less than you deserve.


What’s the right size home for your retirement? The answer depends on whom you ask.

Everyone’s different, and your home plan should work for the way you live. Only you know what feels right. We’ve built a lot and we’ve seen a lot. Mapleridge Fine Home Builders can help guide you to find a plan that is both functional and beautiful in every detail.


This is one of the most exciting aspects of building a custom home. Specifically, it’s how a house becomes your home. A dream home should have all of the upgraded amenities and new technologies that help keep life comfortable and fun. For example, if you love to entertain, maybe this means a gourmet kitchen with the latest appliances and an oversized island. Or if you’re ready to get your creative juices flowing, a bonus room brimming with more things than your local hobby shop might be just what you want. Whatever your passion, the custom home building process makes it easy to create the home of your dreams. Make your list and come back to it often.


A lifestyle that is. What does retirement look like to you? Life after full-time employment is as unique as the retirees themselves. There is no one-size-fits-all model for retirement. Therefore, no cookie-cutter home will do for active seniors. The truth is, a builder should be able to customize each plan to how you want it. Mapleridge Fine Home Builders can help you find the perfect plans so you can make your home yours. After all, it is your dream home, and you should love every detail.


Retired life is what you make of it. Foremost, it’s a fantastic opportunity for expansion and adventure – a time to live out your life passions. After decades of dedication, you deserve to create the retirement lifestyle you desire.

At Mapleridge Fine Home Builders, we can help you design a home that’s right for all of the adventures of your retirement years. No matter your life stage we look forward to helping you celebrate the beginning of another chapter of your life.
