While featuring far more utility than a standard home, a BLD home is not expected to eliminate the need for households to customize their home over time. Everyone customizes their home in a variety of ways. But BLD features (even the basic ones) will help avoid the most costly and extensive remodeling that is most often associated with home modifications of standard homes, such as ramps, widened hallways, or larger bathrooms. Customized remodeling for added functionality and added assistive technology are also more effective when installed as a custom feature in a BLD home. For example, stair lifts can be added later with less costs and hassle and more maneuvering room at the top and bottom. If needed, bars can be added to bathroom walls and toilets and used more safely because of wall blocking and ample maneuvering room in the bathroom.
