What to consider when building your dream retirement home

  Published:

Now that your retirement is approaching and you’ve decided to use your hard-earned savings to build your dream home, you might be wondering where to build and the features to include. 

At Tasbuilt Homes, we’re here to help you design your dream home!

So lets start with a few things:

Location:   As they say, it’s all about location, location, location.   You can choose to build your house in a suburban area, overlooking a sea view.   

If the outdoors aren’t really your type, you can build your perfect retirement home in the comfort of a suburban area. You can choose to have just enough land for a small herb garden and a pet, or opt for a little more greenspace for low-key outdoor activities like bonfires, gardening and a swing set for the grandkids.

Features: Now, what elements or features should your home include?  No matter where you decide to build your dream retirement home, you can include any or all of these elements.

  • Home Theatre:  Now that you don’t have to get up early for work the next day, you can spend your nights catching up on the latest shows and movies.
  • Sunroom or Porch: Enjoy your morning coffee and newspaper from your favourite recliner or rocking chair and watch the sunrise from your porch or sunroom. These areas can also serve as a unique gathering space for when family and friends come to visit.
  • Library:  Have a list of books that you want to read, but never had the time while you were working? Start checking books off that list and add a home library to your retirement home complete with comfy reading spaces and built-in bookshelves. There’s no better way to spend a rainy afternoon than curled up with a good book or reading to the grandkids.
  • Room for Guests:  Whether your children and grandchildren live close by or far away, it’s still worth it to have an extra room or two for sleepovers and weekend visits.   Your grandchildren might even enjoy their own special playroom for when they come to visit.
