As one of our universal design homes, Habitat for Humanity of St. Charles County is excited to build with the thought of all ages and physical conditions in mind.
As part of our four-lot construction in the city of St. Charles, we build with our partner families in mind. 2016 marks a first for us…building two universal design themed homes.
What is a ‘universal design’?
Universal design provides a focus on accessible living for all ages and physical abilities of those residing in the home. For example, using levers instead of knobs, elevating the dishwasher, and constructing all of this on a one-story level home without large steps or severe changes in floor height.
