An innovative and more accessible new home design.

As life changes, so does the meaning of comfort, convenience and wellbeing at home. Everyday tasks such as cooking, showering, doing laundry, turning on lights and simply getting from one room to the next require different effort and attention as your needs change. This is where thoughtful, innovative thinking in new home design and construction can make a major difference in the day-to-day functionality of your home. Inspired by customer inquiries, shifting demographics, Universal Design principles and a growing demand for independent living, Cardel Homes is offering an innovative bungalow design to the new home market in Ottawa.

Available in communities in Kanata South, Richmond and Carleton Place, the Lancaster Independent Living Bungalow has been designed to provide enhanced accessibility and reduced-barrier living for people of all ages.

At just under 1, 700 square feet and featuring three bedrooms and two full bathrooms, this cutting-edge bungalow plan provides the ease and convenience of single-level living, with the added benefit of smart design features that allow for buyers to grow and live in their home longer.
