“We’re not a cookie cutter family. We don’t want a cookie cutter house.” Amanda G. and her partner Zvi spent many years enjoying careers that brought them all around the world. Now they’re building their retirement home near Holliston, where Amanda grew up. “This space needs to reflect who we are, and it needs to work with our family’s special health concerns.” Twelve years ago, Zvi was diagnosed with a health condition that makes it hard for him to maintain his balance. There are times he uses a wheelchair. “You can have an open floor plan, the wider doorways and the accessibility, without compromising a sense of style and design. That’s why we chose a custom built house.”
Amanda and Zvi aren’t alone. The vast majority of people who choose Holliston custom built homes want to enjoy life in a home crafted to serve their needs. Working with a design/build contractor like A.A. Tofani streamlines the process, and gives the homeowner a chance to be fully involved in their own home design.
