When Derek and LeAnne Lavender were looking for an accessible home, they chose to do a total renovation of a bungalow, turning the garage into their master suite and removing carpeting and uneven flooring so that Derek could have full access to his home from his wheelchair. The couple widened the doors throughout the home, created an airy entryway, and made sure that all of their furniture provided easy access from Derek’s wheelchair. The result is a stunning and architecturally interesting home that perfectly encapsulates what invisible accessibility means. Click here to check out the full gallery.
