Access for All
Sometimes accessibility issues limit the choices homebuyers have when looking at existing homes on the market. Instead of settling for a home with entry problems, narrow doors, and poor cabinet heights, this customer called on Jarrettsville Builders for a custom home.

This 2500-square-foot rancher features a spacious open interior, vaulted ceilings, and a two-car garage. Among the accessibility features are wider doors, chair-accessible shower, cabinetry at lower heights, and level door hardware. We also minimized the grade of land around the dwelling to provide a level path from the garage to the front door.

The cost of these improvements is minimal when compared to the freedom of accessibility they provide.
