Max and Norma
- Chair lift to lower level
- Landing/railing in garage for safer access
- Bathroom that would work for current and future needs
- Bedroom/closet to work with wheelchair/walker/cane
- Flooring that would not impede movement
- A safe and independent space for her son
- Privacy: separate spaces for both Max and Norma so that they could live their lives together and yet separately and with dignity
Remodeling the basement for Max gave both himself and Norma their own space while making sure that needs were met. There was already a guest bedroom and bathroom downstairs, but unfortunately, it wasn’t designed to help Max live more freely. In redesigning the area, Peter took space from the bedroom closet and added the two extra feet to the bathroom to make it accessible.
Max wanted a space he could call his own, a space that represented who he is while meeting his needs. He wanted to create a space that was wheelchair friendly, spoke of independence, gave both himself and his mother their own privacy, and showed his own creativity.
Max and Norma made this a wonderful project from start to finish. We are grateful for the opportunity to stretch our wings and design something truly unique and beautiful.
