Forever Home Lifestyle

Whether you are planning to build a new home, or simply adapting, refurbishing or retrofitting a existing one, the Forever Home Lifestyle is a framework you can use to plan a richer, more fulfilling, way of living.

Developed from over a decade of experience of helping homeowners create their forever home, this simple ten point framework has been designed to help you creat focus, prioritise decision making and avoid costly mistakes – some of which may not become apparent for many years to come.

The framework makes use of ten headings. They are

  • CONTENTMENT: Daily Delight
  • CONVENIENCE: Towards An Easy Life
  • CONTROL: In charge and in command
  • CONFIDENCE: Return On Design Quality
  • COMMUNITY: In Action
  • CONNECTION: To The Important Things
  • CHARACTER: Personality Of The Place
  • FUTUREPROOF: Peace of Mind
  • FINANCIAL PEACE: and Security
  • FAITHFUL CUSTODIAN: Care, Compassion And Contribution
  • FREE TIME (in abundance)

I explained how you can use the Forever Home Lifestyle on the House Planning Help podscast. Listen to the interview by clicking on the media player below.
