House Expansion in Taylor, MI

This project involved an expansion of an existing bungalow-style house to accommodate a person who was injured in an auto accident.  The expansion, though large, needed to fit with the modest original house.  Since the original house was above grade, as seen in the porch on the front of the house, ramps were provided in the garage and on the back side of the house to provide the occupants access into and out of the home.  A fully accessible bathroom and bedroom was provided in the addition, along with a laundry designed as a tornado shelter per FEMA guidelines.
