What is Universal Design?

Zbranek & Holt Custom Homes strives to create homes that fully meet our clients’ needs and expectations. We understand that needs can be determined by your family’s individual requirements. No matter your individual situation we are skilled at building homes that accommodate any special need; be it aging occupants, handicapped family members or simply planning to your future.

Many people ask “What is Universal Design”? Simply stated these are considerations taken during home design and construction that make accommodations for the occupant’s individual needs.

Universal Design is a design approach that seeks to create environments, objects, and systems that can be used by as many people as possible. To this end, Universal Design is the process of embedding choice for all people in the things we design.


  • Choice involves flexibility, and multiple alternative means of use and/or interface
  • People includes the full range of people regardless of age, ability, sex, etc.
  • Things include spaces, products, information systems and any other things that humans manipulate or create

Specially Adapted Homes

A custom home is a home specifically designed to create a comfortable environment and meet the needs of its family. Zbranek & Holt Custom Homes prides itself on its ability to understand those needs and build a home that fits your family’s specific needs. Meaningful adjustments are often subtle to the new home design and helpful to the occupant. Examples of these adjustments are:

  • Wider Hallways
  • Lowered Light Switches and Raised Electrical Plugs
  • Roll Under Sinks
  • Lower Door Thresholds
  • Door Handles vs. Round Knobs
  • Roll in Showers and Step in Tubs
  • Elevators, either installed or designed for future installation
  • Home Automation with web based controls
