Budgets versus Needs
Creating entrances to a home that are wheelchair accessible can be quite daunting. Every door design is different, and therefore we have to think a bit outside the box for each case.
We never want to go over the agreed budget for our clients. Homestyle’s goal is to present the budget and stay with that number—never going under.
But for this project, we had to figure out how to create a ramp so a wheelchair could get through the sliding glass door easily. Taking out the door/remodeling the entrance would have caused price spike.
So we created a ramp that would incline over the treads, allowing the door to close and the wheelchair to smoothly pass over.
We were able to come up with a solution that stayed within the budget, caused the least amount of intrusion, and kept within the projected time schedule so that our clients could live in their home unhindered.
