Flexibility for a Changing Lifestyle
Accessibility Design was contacted by Michelle Nickerson to help with her new condominium
construction project. As a single individual living with a disability, Michelle wanted a home that would accommodate
her lifestyle as she moved through various phases of her life, including the possibility of getting married and starting
a family. Being young, she also wanted a home that would be appealing to potential homebuyers if the need to sell arose.
One of the lessons I've learned in the process of finding a home is the difference between a home that claims to be accessible and one that truly is accessible, incorporating universal design. Having a few ideas of what I wanted, but no method to reach a final product, I contacted Jane Hampton of Accessibility Design. She listened to my frustrations with other "accessible housing" and my list of desired features in a home. Together, we assessed my existing apartment home to discover what was working and what was not. The experience and knowledge Jane brought to the project was invaluable. I would not have found a home anywhere else that so perfectly meets my needs.
