    I really like this one and although not in a wheel chair ,several who would visit are. Really nicely done

  • Kathy Molyneux November 4, 2015, 3:34 pm

    How much would this tiny cottage cost as shown and how many square feet is it?

  • CindyN November 4, 2015, 4:27 pm

    Just lovely. I would love to live in this one!

  • Kim W November 4, 2015, 4:59 pm

    Lovely! Great to see such a sweet cottage that is wheelchair accessible. Presumably it could be delivered and built more quickly than a bricks and mortar home.

  • gale November 4, 2015, 5:49 pm

    Wow…what’s not to love? Great home for anyone.

  • Mark Terene November 4, 2015, 7:58 pm

    Wow! These are nice. Love to build one up in Ontario. They would be great winterized. Justvthe right amount of space.
    Wheelchair accessible is wonderful too.

    I’m sure this cottage can be changed into a non wheel chair accessible for those who don’t use a wheel chair. I think it is great that they have designed this for people who have wheel chairs.

    I like it…I just wish it wasn’t called a “care cottage.” A lot of people who use wheelchairs don’t need a caretaker, and so don’t have to live close to that caretaker in a “care cottage.”

    I’m glad to see a small house that is wheelchair friendly.
    I don’t need one myself but I have had several friends who have had to adapt their homes.
    Thinking about accessibility at the outset costs little or nothing and saves a lot in the long run.
    Having to adapt to age and infirmity is hard enough without looking for a new home.
    I agree with the comments about bathroom privacy and front entrance access.
    Narrow double doors on the bathroom wouldn’t get in the way.
    Entering your own home by your bedroom when the world comes in the front door. I think not.
    Small outdoor lifts are available, if costly. Otherwise remove the steps to the porch and have railings and a ramp for everyone to use.

    Hi,

    This house is beautiful!! But as I was looking around the kitchen, I noticed that the washer and dryer are at the right level. The problem I see for someone who solely using a wheel chair to get around, how do they reach the kitchen cabinets above the refrigerator and the washer & dryer. Unless they have someone living with them that they could rely on to help them. I think the cabinets are beautiful!! But I think they should be at their level where they could easily access what they need to be able to get in and out of them. Just like the way you have the bathroom sink set up for someone who is handicapped that is a perfect level for them. On the whole the house is gorgeous!! Carol Perry

    have a good sized washer and dryer in there and they are at the right level.

  • Kristi November 5, 2015, 6:11 pm

    Wow that’s two from this company that got it right. While I don’t need a wheelchair now I will one day. I would like to have either a pocket or sliding door for the private areas. Lo e it

  • curt November 5, 2015, 6:48 pm

    Well done! In a park I think you would have more room on the side of the house for a ramp than the front. In most parks you would have the parking on the side also. The fact its so much lower to the ground than a regular park model is interesting. Instead of worrying about a door on the bathroom just use the bedroom door. I. Might make The peninsula top a lower countertop level as a work surface, desk, dining area. the lift track is brilliant. If you look at major hurdles that would force someone out of their house that helps solve half of it. I think of all the 50 plus parks or small city lots this would fit on. Plus I wouldn’t mind living in the place and am not in a wheelchair. I would beo able to recover at home when I do have my knee, hip surgery.

  • Valerie January 16, 2017, 6:18 pm

    Very wise to include the overhead lift system for the bath and bedroom!

  • ZACHARY E MOHRMANN January 16, 2017, 9:10 pm

    As a person who has disabilities, I can say this would be a God send to me if I were able to afford a Tiny House this grand … I get around some what OK for the most part these days but I am still unable to care for the home I am in because of my disabilities…! And is the reason I first come to be involved with tiny houses… My ultimate goal is to find land closer to shopping, and friends and then to build the tiny house of my new found dreams…

  • ZACHARY E MOHRMANN January 16, 2017, 9:13 pm

    I’m sorry I meant to add, A home I would be more capable of taking care of as this one is far to large for me alone…!

  • jm January 17, 2017, 3:05 am

    If I actually saw a time in the future where I would need a wheelchair I would design, or find a design, that would allow me to easily covert to wheelchair accessable. Yes it means building from scratch (best)…or maybe not if you can find something easy to convert. Find an architect that will donate his time to help you. Maybe in church. Why not, lawyers do it all the time. Then find a builder…

  • Claude January 17, 2017, 10:17 am

    Very nice, large enough for two without feeling cramped.

  • Vicki Frakes January 17, 2017, 11:54 pm

    I would be very interested in see the floor plan. I am on a very limited income and can’t afford a $50,000.00 plus home. So I would have to work with a prefab building. So, I would like to know the width and length of one of the fantastic homes. Thank you so much. Great job.

  • Ihab January 29, 2017, 3:53 pm

    Very nicely done, but no one I know could reach that refridgerator from their wheel chair. And why waste so much space on the gigantic washer and dryer units. Also there is no wheelchair access under the sink. These spaces need to be better designed for access ‘from’ a wheel chair. The lift system is genius.

    • Ihab January 29, 2017, 3:58 pm

      Kitchen picture just loaded and I see now there is access under both the kitchen sink, the stove and the island. Still that fridge is a monster. Under counter units are much better.

      • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee January 30, 2017, 7:14 am

        Depends on how much you cook. I have an under counter fridge and I curse it daily 🙂 hehe

  • Michele in CA January 30, 2017, 1:58 pm

    I love that this is wheelchair accessible. For the elderly, it’s a must. Even if someone isn’t in a wheelchair now, slips and falls happen. You never know if you might end up in one even temporarily. I didn’t see grab bars, which should be in every home. They make all the difference in the world for stability.
