A few changes that overcome nagging barriers quickly inject new life into a home, and go a long way to making us feel young again.

Special Access Remodeling
Accessibility for Everyone
Accessibility means EVERYONE can come and go from your home with ease, all year long. That means that whether you’re hauling in the groceries, taking the baby out in the stroller or wheeling yourself out to the car, a well designed home supports that.
We are one of very few remodeling consultants with experience in special-needs ability remodeling, wheelchair access, lifts, and most all specialty needs accessibility projects. Most situations are unique, and chances are we have seen something similar in the past and can make a much more qualified assessment of the proper installation requirements. Do not let your home stand in the way of you enjoying your day-to-day life experience, as a home can be modified much more easily than a piece of equipment.
The sooner we can start making improvements for you, the longer you can enjoy and peace of mind of knowing you’re prepared for whatever tomorrow brings. And if moving makes more sense for you, we can help get update your current home, while preparing your next home with the improvements that you’re looking for.
