Adapted house

Wheelchair-accessible home with many practical details

Description
One-story house adapted so the user can enter each room and move freely around the house. The house has many clever details, see related tip. High thresholds are removed.

Authors comments
The user had been injured for several years when he and his family bought this house. This is the second adaptation he planned and he knew what works for him and how he wanted things. Now he is pleased with the house; he can enter every room and corner of the house, which is important for him because he has to be able to follow after his three young children. He can manage all features in the house even when he is home alone. He uses both an ordinary manual active wheelchair and a standing chair.
