Access

At Lifestyle Granny Flats we have design options for our single-level granny flats which make wheelchair access a breeze.

These options take full advantage of our innovative designs but make minor modifications to the size of the floor plan to allow wider external and internal door access. The designs which best adapt to wheelchair access are the Metro and the Seabreeze. These both have two bedrooms and our wheelchair-friendly options increase the floor areas slightly to 70m² and 60m² respectively. The design changes reflect the recommendations in Australian Standards AS4299 (Adaptable House) and AS1428.1 (Design for Mobility and Access) which encourage us to design homes that can accommodate lifestyle changes and to address issues of access and mobility based on the varying degrees of our physical ability over time.

All our designs with exception of the two-level Chalet are available with wheelchair-friendly options including:

  • Access ramps to the entry
  • Generous front door width of 870mm
  • Wider access into and through bedrooms / bathrooms (870mm door size)
  • Larger bathrooms with special consideration given to toilet and shower size / position
  • Grabrails in the shower and beside the toilet
  • Easier bathroom and kitchen thoroughfare

With overall increases to the floor area and the provision of access ramps, wider doors and larger bathrooms you will be pleasantly surprised by the minimal extra cost for these improvements which, like all of our designs, are offered to you at a fixed price to give you peace of mind.
