An aging ranch becomes accessible

News, Specialty Project, Saline, Michigan

This home is in the Saline, Michigan area. Our client, a Vietnam veteran, suffers from MS. We had previously moved the laundry from the basement to one of the ground floor bedrooms. This phase of work helped to insure the owners would be able to stay in their home, safely and comfortably. One of the major issues was two sunken floors at the main entryways, one at the garage entry, and the other in the front foyer. The stairway to the basement was also impacted by the raising of the garage entrance floor, and had to be extended and raised. Both doors were also elevated, and a wider, low stair was added at the main entry. The fireplace and hearth was a safety issue as well. We removed it entirely, sealed off the fireplace, and finished the wall and ceiling. A dividing wall was removed to open up the space between the kitchen and hallway, and laminate floors were installed throughout to create one level surface. We are proud to have completed this project for one of our local armed forces veterans. Thank you for your service Curt!
