This large home has been custom-designed to make life easier for individuals who rely on wheelchairs for their mobility. All areas are fully accessible, with the exception of a loft and guest bedroom located on the partial second floor.
There are four entry ramps allowing immediate access to any part of the house, decks, garage and the yard. In addition, all doors are 3 feet wide and some corners have 45-degree angles instead of the usual 90 degrees, while others are rounded.
More special adaptations are found in the kitchen, where the range'top work island and counters also have rounded ends. French doors open onto the back deck from the adjacent family room and dining room.
The downstairs bedrooms share a specially-adapted bathroom. The shower stall is designed to accommodate a wheelchair, and placement of the tub also allows easy access. Twin vanities provide plenty of space to spread out toiletries.
French doors in the bathroom open into a fully accessible spa room. French doors in the bedrooms open on private decks with spa access. The master bedroom has a huge walk-in closet, and yet another vanity.
Vaulted ceilings in the living room and entry foyer create a first impression of informal openness. The den, located adjacent to the front door, could easily double as a home office.
All of our plans are designed by licensed architects and residential building designers. Each plan is designed to meet nationally recognized building codes for the year they were created.

All of our plans are designed to provide the information needed to build your home. Because of the wide range of requirements throughout states and municipalities, it is possible that the plans may not have all of the information required by your building department. If this is the case, we recommend hiring a local design professional or engineer who can assist bringing the plans up to your local building code.
Some states require that a licensed architect or engineer review and stamp the plans. If this is the case where you will be building, a local professional will be able to assist you.
