With the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), nearly every aspect of architectural design has come under closer scrutiny for barrier-free access. This book not only explains all applications of ADA guidelines as they relate to residential barrier-free design, but also answers virtually every question on identifying and removing barriers. Architects and designers are taken on a walk-through of an imaginary home, with an eye toward recognizing and removing typical obstacles to create freedom of access. From the driveway to the patio, from the bedroom to the bathroom, the book presents guidelines on how to work with the new dimensional requirements. Also included are checklists and surveys which quickly point out where barriers exist in renovations and new construction.
