This is all porcelain tile from green factories in the U.S. All Water Sense plumbing, w/new ADA Toto, wall mounted single surface sink with towel/grab bar from Ponte Guilio, as are the gorgeous grab bars. Low voltage lighting from WAC. Sloped floor in shower, barrier free entrance. The owner, a man in his late 60’s, LOVES this bathroom!
Did this for a client with cancer, was having surgery coming up, and wanted to make certain he would be able to ‘take care of himself’ if he was in a walker or wheel chair for any length of time. Plus, it is used by the family for guests and their son when he visits.

About Jane Regan
At HB Building and Design, we provide beautiful aging in place remodeling options. We specialize in barrier free bathrooms, as well as kitchens with special accommodations and stylish design to ensure you can easily prepare meals safely for as long as you live in your home.
We work with people to place grab bars, hand rails, stair chairs, interior and exterior elevators, and build access ramps and decks. From a simple change like replacing all the doorknobs with lever handles, to radical changes like adding an exterior elevator or changing all the flooring, there’s no time that’s too soon to start thinking about design for aging in place!
