An ADA compliant addition for a retired veteran

Nothing is more frustrating than trying to maneuver within your own home with a walker or wheelchair. Doorways and bathrooms were not built to allow for free passage. Allison Ong Shreffler, Architect teamed up with Stoneybrooke Home Renovations & Design to provide this new addition to address ADA accessibility for a retired veteran and his wife.

Addition to veteran's home is a seamless transition to the existing home.

The bedroom is surrounded by windows, allowing for a bright and sunlit room with views to the backyard. The bathroom was specifically designed to include a zero threshold, roll-in shower, a hydrotherapy tub, and an ample turnaround space with grab bars for easy access to the toilet.

Windows encompass this Master bedroom, providing brightness throughout the day.
