Designing the Accessible Home

The Accessible Home, Deborah Pierce

Designing the Accessible Home takes pains to ensure equality between the able and the disabled.  After all, what is "accessible design" if not plain common sense?

For example, low windows allow for persons in wheelchairs to see outside.  But low windows are great for anybody:  you get to see parts of the property that are ordinarily hidden.

It's not a book for everyone.  If you have a DIY bent, you can ignore this book.  It's mainly for homeowners in the initial stages of consultation with architects, designers, and contractors.
