Golden Rule Builders
Convenience is starting to shape the way homes are being built and remodeled. Before the economy turned people moved because of a new job or wanting to "move-up."

Universal design concepts such as single-level living is fast becoming one of the most popular demands in building or buying a home. People are also choosing quality products that will last the life of the home and have a high level of performance.
