The homeowners in this home face daily challenges just living in their home. The gentleman of the home has had Polio from a very early age. We listened to the homeowners and tried to find solutions to these special challenges.
He enters the home from the garage. Imagine every time you enter your home you get struck by the garage door because it has a door closure on it. Our solution to this situation was to install an Open Sesame door that opens and closes from a key fob on your keychain or a hand held remote on the wall.
How frustrating it must be that once you finally make it in to your home, you bump the walls with your wheelchair because the doorways in this 55 active community are not wide enough to accommodate your wheelchair so we widened the doorways in the home during the kitchen remodel.
To further accommodate the needs of this individual, we installed a lever faucet and a shallow sink mounted in a base cabinet with pocket doors that allows wheel under access. We also installed a pneumatic switch to operate the garbage disposal.
From the time you enter the kitchen the beautiful waterfall countertop located on the island immediately draws your eye. There is lots of drawers and pullouts located in this island to ensure items are conveniently located at his fingertips.
Now instead of fighting their home, these homeowners not have a house that functions to make their lives easier each day.
