Accessible Innovations That Can Transform Your Home from Prison to Paradise!
Perhaps a little dramatic for most of us but listen to homeowners who cannot use their entire home because of inaccessability. Hallways that are too narrow. Shelves that are too high. Oven doors that can't be managed. Sinks that can't be approached. For someone who truly needs accessibility in an inaccessible world, home can be a prison.
Thankfully, the accessible home movement that began in Europe is catching on in America! On this page (and virtually every page in the accessibility section of our website), you will find recent innovations in accessibility that are changing the way people live and giving new hope for those needing accessibility.
Below are a few examples of the special accessible features we can design and build for your new accessible home or remodel. Scroll to the bottom of this page for links to pictures of a few of our accessible homes as well as custom homes and log homes!

Zero Threshold for Easy Entry
A central part of accessibility is to consider every part of the home that contains any kind of barrier, and that includes something as small as a door threshold. For many, even the slightest bump can cause jarring pain, so an entry door with an adjustable threshold is a welcome addition! See "Adjustable Door Sweep", next photo.
Adjustable Door Sweep
New technology has enabled homeowners to adjust their entry door thresholds without causing a draft below the door threshold. With the adjustable door sweep, the door automatically positions the sweep to the ideal height. Easy. Simple. Brilliant!
Along with a host of drawer and storage innovations, Wood Wright uses fully opening 170 degree door hinges for full access to your stored items!
