A New Way to Design Accessible HousingBy Williams, John M.; Action Magazine,
Publication Date: November 10, 2008
Article features Simplified Disabled Housing, a company which builds individualized accessible homes through a patent-pending component system. The system individualizes homes by offering multiple styles and different heights, widths, depths, and left/right-handedness options for the components of a home. People with accessible housing needs tour a model home fitted with colored markers developed by the company. The customers determine the height, width, and depth of the components of their individualized home by reaching out to the dot that best fits their needs and then record their choice on a check-off sheet. The company executive interviewed also recommends that owners visit their home frequently during construction to ascertain that accessibility specifications are being met.
