I often speak to customers who are concerned about their home being constructed to accommodate a possible handicapped family member. Below is a list of features that you may want to consider when building a home that will make it more handicapped accessible for current use and will be less costly with the initial construction than modifying your home to address future needs.

  • Wider doorways
  • Enlarge bathroom facilities
  • Handicapped shower with grab bars
  • Install special railings, ramps or not step entry
  • Chair Height toilets
  • Roll out trays in cabinets
  • Lever door handles in place of knobs
  • Enlarge garage if necessary
  • Low pile carpet
