About Us

becky and tony schafferSchaffer Construction - Designs for Life is a Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS) specializing in aging in place modifications for our seniors and special needs remodeling services for people with disabilities.

We are the leading provider of “complete” home access and modification solutions in the Northern Virginia area serving our elders and people with disabilities. Our job is providing access modifications for people who have barriers affecting their activities of daily living.

We earned the Certified-Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS) designation in 2007 from the National Association Of Homebuilders (NAHB) providing us with the basic knowledge and tools to provide aging in place modifications for seniors. We quickly learned there are many people in our communities facing barriers to their activities of daily living and there was not a “how to” book with all of the answers for each person’s unique situation.

In 2008 we made the decision to specialize in serving the needs of all people who face barriers in their homes. Following this path has opened our eyes to the shortage of qualified providers serving the growing number of people.
