Sorry, what did he do beside lower light switches? They mentioned the owner was able to be close to spots in the house, but what? The whole article was about how awesome it is to create universal design - I'd like to know the details and tricks he used! Pointless read...

Universal design is so important when you want to build a home people will enjoy for the rest of their lives. What a thoughtful touch about lowering the seating of the guests, and designing for Ken's eye level. Definitely on my bucket list of places to visit!
