Do you have any ideas about building a fully accessible house yourself? No? Don’t worry. Chris Nicholls, our General Manager of Transitional Services, will show you how to achieve it with informative steps.

A Post about How to Build a Fully Accessible House

The brief was simple:

  • 1. To make ALL rooms accessible.
  • 2. To make the house and pool wheelchair (paraplegia) friendly throughout – without the “Hospital” look.
  • 3. To make upkeep as low maintenance as possible.
  • 4. To create an Indoor / outdoor living experience.

Meantime, it also needs to meet the requirements of the whole family. As a result, the two-storey house presents a lift to maximise floor space and still conform to the council’s required building-to-land ratios. There are no steps or lips within the building or at the front door or rear Bi-folds. Moreover, in case of a major lift malfunction, his playroom can be used as a bedroom, and there is a fully accessible bathroom with shower downstairs.
