Canadian Softwood Lumber

U.S. domestic production is not sufficient to meet demand. NAHB is working with the Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management to clear the regulatory hurdles that constrain domestic lumber production.
55+ Designs: How to Please a Diverse Clientele
If there is one word that unites the 55+ population, it is probably "diverse." There is no one-size-fits-all solution for this generation, from work to cars to home design. For example, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 40 percent of the 55+ population is employed and makes up about one-quarter of the workplace-but they're not all toiling away at traditional, full-time jobs. They represent various cultures and pursue a multiplicity of living arrangements, from independent living to multi-generational households.
That's why any residential design for the 55+ marketplace-be it single-family dwellings, multi-unit buildings, or shared housing structures, such as those that accommodate grandparents, children and grandchildren-must be a response not only to the 55+ community's desires but also to the surrounding community and residents.
