They want to die in the home, never being put in long term care to die. If they want to stay in there long term, they're going to need a first floor everything. She just wanted a bathroom, she wanted a room half this size, only the first 2 windows. But if you're gonna do it, why not just bang everything out in one go? Put a big walk in shower, put a laundry room in it, so you don't have to go down to the basement at all.
The pocket door will be 36", the floor will be one continuous floor even into the shower, and the new floor will butt up against the existing floor, so there will be no ledge to go over. He will be able to wheel from the back room right into the shower or to the toilet with no obstructions. There will be plenty of room for him to spin in circles in the bathroom if he wants. The floor will have a slight pitch to the shower drain so the water will drain, but no ledges at all so he can roll in and transfer directly to a shower seat.
THe goal is to be able to wheelchair everywhere without any ledges or lines. Floor will be all continuous tile from the shower, toilet, floor, etc.
When you’re done build me one.
