Because one of the homeowners uses a wheelchair, special attention was paid to accessibility on the first floor. Measurements were carefully taken to ensure that angles and pathways were wide enough. A special angled cut-through was added to the kitchen island to enable access to the kitchen from all sides, and wiring was reconfigured in the island.
Other accessibility improvements include:
- Hard-surface flooring in wood and tile throughout the first floor
- Spring-loaded hanging racks in the master closet that can be lowered and raised to access clothing
- Roll-out kitchen cabinet shelving
- Wheelchair-level electrical outlets and light switches
