One of the best parts about a Cornerstone home is that the maintenance-free lifestyle gives you as much time as you want to spend with your grandkids! Without having to worry about maintenance, repairs, and safety, you can head out for the day or Lock and Leave your home as you please and take your grandkids somewhere special.
