The proposals to this three storey dwelling aimed to assist the home owner living needs. This disabled home adaptation included minor internal alterations, level access to the front and rear of the property and an external lift at the rear of the property.
Whilst the lift option was perhaps not necessary, we felt that justification of this could come from being able to omit some of the internal alterations, due to just 1no. wheelchair being required in the property rather than 3no. (one on each level), the stair lifts being removed improving circulation within the property, the number of transfers the homeowner needed to make between wheelchairs and stair lifts would be avoided, enabling the owner to enjoy his family time without constraints.
