Following a survey on our website and through the participation of nearly 500 respondents, we are pleased to introduce the first of two plans designed for people with limited mobility or confined to a wheelchair. This design in not only ideal for the residents but also allows the home to easily accommodate guests or visitors of all abilities.
A slight exterior ramp is aesthetically pleasing and a door sill set into the floor allows barrier-free access. This also applies to the back of the house where we find a beautiful sheltered terrace of approximately 18 ft x 12 ft.
Inside, this house is characterized by 5-foot wide corridors, and the particular care given to enlarge spaces and include widened doors for easy access and movement in different rooms. The interior also features a kitchen with dual-level bar for inclusive meal-times, an adapted bathroom with laundry included, double vanity and adjustable shower combined with a bath with lots of storage and integrated grab-bars. For further comfort, note the presence of heated concrete slab floors, additional care to the lighting of activities areas and 9 ft ceilings throughout.
