Second Nature Design
What a brilliant job! Very timely for me as I am modifying aspects of my home for current mobility challenges. Just finishing a major bathroom transformation -- the clawfoot tub had to go and I guess I "threw the baby out with the bathwater." Will be posting as soon as I put in the finishing touches which I needed hands-on time in the space to design.

Excellent example of Universal Design not looking any different than excellent design for "regular" homes. I wish all new dwellings would be built this way. It is so much easier to apply Universal Design from the beginning than to retrofit a home or apartment later.
