Following a survey on our website with close to 500 respondents, consensus was a desire for available universal access or wheelchair-modified plans. We are pleased to unveil a second accessible plan. Accessible homes are not only for the comfort of the residents but also ensure visitability of the home, allowing enjoyment of the home by all!

Like plan 3275, it proposes easy access via gentle ramps at the front and rear and barrier-free thresholds. A sheltered rear 12ft x 18ft terrace is sure to extend the season for outdoor enjoyment.

Inside, the house is characterized by pleasing in-floor heating of the concrete slab floor, abundant natural light in the activities areas and 9ft ceilings throughout the ground floor. A dual-height kitchen island allows inclusive casual meals and kitchen prep areas. The bathroom is similarly appointed with dual-height vanities. Even the toilet and bathtub and shower have been carefully considered, allowing space for a wheelchair or walker and reinforced points for grab-rail support. All halls are 5 feet wide and wider doors facilitate access and movement in different rooms.

The key differences between this model and 3275: three bedrooms instead of two with bedroom one and two being larger, a larger attached garage and classical exterior rather than contemporary treatment. 

Barrier-free homes like this are exceptionally comfortable for all residents and sure to provide a home for graceful aging-in-place.

    We are looking to build an L shaped home on Long Island. We want not more than 2500 feet on two levels. The main level needs to be wheelchair accessible. The building lot is 50′ wide. Would love a 3 car garage, but 2 car will do. Do you have any plans that would suite us?
