Right-Size Your Life With Heartland Builders | Blog

If your life was an open book, what would you do with your time? Would you go kayaking on Lake Tahoe, take a weekend trip to visit your children in college, listen to jazz in New Orleans, or volunteer at your favorite charity? Whatever it is that you’ve been meaning to do, living here lets you do it.

At Heartland Builders, our secret to a happy life is simple: simplify. But simplifying your home doesn’t mean sacrificing quality. In fact, downsizing has nothing to do with the word “down,” and everything to do with the word “up.” When you move out of a home that’s too big (and doesn’t have your back), you’ll notice that comfort and happiness arise in abundance.

In one of our thoughtfully designed, energy-efficient homes, you can look forward to the very best days ahead! Heartland Builders provides you with everything you need to love each and every moment of your life.

Single-Level Living

Stepping into your Heartland Builders home gives a whole new meaning to being in the right place at the right time. Building a single-level oasis, complete with all the space you need to do everything you want, is exactly where you belong at this exciting time in your life. Envision a warm and inviting open-concept design that allows for easy living, plus an owner’s suite without any barriers… both of which will have you falling in love with being “single” again!

Think about the annoyance of lugging laundry or luggage up the stairs, or the hassle of not being able to move freely from room to room — in one of our single-level homes, these daily problems are a thing of the past. Now, you can make your morning coffee in your kitchen and enjoy it in your bedroom. You can get your laundry done without making several trips up and down the stairs. Our promise? Your life here is all about convenience.

We don’t just believe that your home should be beautiful; we believe that it should have your back. As time passes and your needs change, you shouldn’t have to worry about additions or renovations being made to your home. In fact, we think you shouldn’t have to worry about anything, because your home should be as prepared as possible for your future.

With features like a zero-step entry to your front door and shower, wider doors and hallways, clear, open floor space, and options for barrier-free living like rocker-style light switches, slightly raised electrical outlets, grab-bar backing around toilets and showers, and shower faucets with personal slide bars, your daily tasks become easier and more comfortable than ever. Not to mention, simplified design choices like two bedrooms on the main floor instead of three mean more time to enjoy everything than to clean.

When all is said and done, the decision to move to a smaller home, or a home on one level, is a big one — but when you’re in the hands of Heartland Builders, a team who understands what you want and need in a brand new home, you can rest assured that the choice you’re making is the right one. There’s never a wrong time to right-size your life, and with the new season coming up, you have a new chance to start your greatest adventure!
