Accessible renovations

Catching up a bit:

The Roslyn addition below hasn't progressed much further, as the family gets back to school (the dad also ref's various kids sports) and some products were delayed. Windows are in and hopefully they can get the siding on before the bad weather hits.

Meanwhile, I'm working on renovations to open up a house for a wonderful family with a couple of charming kids with significant physical disabilities.  We will enlarge a kitchen and make it adaptable/accessible, add a family room, add an indoor pool that will let the kids exercise, play with friends and be weightless for a while and let the rest of the family have a social space as well. We'll also be adding track systems to help get to and from the bath and bedrooms, and "designing for the curve" ie, keep sharp corners and objects, tables, etc out of the path of the lively 5 year old on a scooter or wheelchair! And adapt the site for easier access from the drive and garage. This is a VERY rough massing model letting us look at roof lines, impact on the yard and aesthetic issues. This will evolve quite a bit as design continues.
