Lifetime Homes Standards

The Lifetime Homes Standard is a series of sixteen design criteria intended to make homes more easily adaptable for lifetime use at minimal cost. The concept was initially developed in 1991 by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation and Habinteg Housing Association. The administration and technical support on Lifetime Homes is provided by Habinteg, who took on this responsibility from the Joseph Rowntree Foundation in 2008. On 25 February 2008 the UK Government announced its intention to work towards all new homes being built to Lifetime Homes Standards by 2013. The sixteen criteria are: Circulation space Communal stairs and lifts Approach to dwelling from parking distance, gradients and widths WC and bathroom walls Internal doorways and hallways Bathrooms Approach to all entrances Entrances Stairs and potential through-floor lift in dwellings Potential for entrance level bed space Entrance level WC and shower drainage Entrance level living space Glazing and window handle Potential for fitting of hoists and bedroom / bathroom relationship Location of service controls Parking width or widening capability

Ancestral Puebloan dwellings

Hundreds of Ancestral Puebloan dwellings are found across the American Southwest. With almost all constructed well before 1492 CE, these Puebloan towns and villages are located throughout the geography of the Southwest. Many of these dwellings included various defensive positions, like the high steep mesas such as at the ancient Mesa Verde complex or the present-day Acoma "Sky City" Pueblo. Earlier than 900 CE progressing past the 13th century, the population complexes appear to have been major cultural centers for the Pueblo peoples. There were also settlements scattered throughout the region of varying sizes.
