Accessible Home Design Architectural Solutions For The Wheelchair User

Jessi and Jamie Hatfield are a young, active couple who both happen to be wheelchair users. They met at the Rehabilitation Institute of St. Louis, where Jamie was doing outpatient therapy, and began dating. When they got married, the Hatfields shared a small apartment in Midtown that didn’t provide the accessibility they needed. They knew they wanted to live in the city and considered buying an older home and remodeling it to suit their needs, but Jessi says, “By the time we paid for a house and did all of the adaptations it needed, it would have ended up being too much.” They knew the best solution would be to start from scratch.
