Justin Kagerbauer

Justin D. Kagerbauer

Certified Aging in Place Specialist (CAPS)

Knowing that a successful project begins with an in-depth understanding of our clients’ needs, Justin prides himself on his ability to translate a client’s vision from words into reality. Applying his experience in design and construction, Justin provides creative, yet practical solutions to the challenges facing older adults and individuals with physical limitations. When he’s not working, Justin enjoys volleyball, water skiing, playing just about any sport that involves a ball with his two sons Kaden and Ian, and spending time with Jen (his wife), Kaden, and Ian at Lake Winnebago.

As a retired baby boomer, Dirk works with Justin to ensure all ALD‘s solutions meet our clients’ needs. Having built three homes and assisted in the construction of several others, he also helps to make sure ALD‘s solutions are practical and affordable. Additionally, Dirk takes care of the “behind-the-scenes” activities at Adaptive Living Designs so that Justin can focus on our clients. When he’s not working at a computer, you can find Dirk in one of his basement workshops, playing with his three grandsons, Kaden, Ian, and McKinley, and spending time with Deb (his wife) and their entire family at Lake Winnebago.
