Today we have been given confirmation by Lifemark™ that our design will receive a full 5 star rating upon completion. The Lifemark team were fantastic to deal with and were very understanding about the difficulties we are facing as this project is a renovation.
Due to the existing hallway being too narrow (only 930mm) we almost missed out on achieving this rating. But after a bit of consideration, Zane decided to move the hallway wall to qualify for Lifemark. Increasing to 1100mm wide, the entry and hallway have really opened up, making circulation through the home much more pleasant.
This goes to show that even though it is a little more effort, making a renovated home more accessible is really worth it – not just for the elderly or disabled, but for everyone!
