New Home Enables Wheelchairs to Move Independently

Attractive Accessibility Liberates Entire Family

As you pass through this home’s extra-wide cerulean blue door, you will instantly know that you’ve entered a custom home designed and built by Graham Builders. The beauty and spaciousness follows the company’s attention to design and construction detail. It carries other trademarks common to Graham Builders’ residences like its high vaulted ceilings, minimal halls and the abundance of nature’s daylight and breezes.

And yet, with all its surface beauty, there is something else that makes this residence extraordinary; it is designed for full wheelchair access. Wheelchairs enable its user, increases accessibility and opportunities – as long as the surroundings allow passage. Having a home that grants independent movement to the entire household was the catalyst for this project.

The kitchen allows wheelchair freedom with under-sink and -stove access. Lower counter height permits cooks to do food prep work and can double as a spot to help children with their homework. The exercise room is surrounded with floor to ceiling mirrors and is an ideal space for therapy work and general workouts. All bathrooms have an open space beneath the sinks with adjustable mirrors and the master closet was designed extra-large for easy use.

Graham Builders is the first contractor in Hawaii to have a National Association of Home Builder’s Certified Aging in Place Specialist (CAPS) on staff and has helped hundreds of homeowners to design and build their dream home.
