Habitat For Humanity® Winnipeg - The Future Builders
Construction: Accessibility

An affordable Habitat home may well be the only home its owners ever live in. Understanding this, Habitat has planned ahead for their futures by incorporating wider doorways for future wheelchair accessibility, if it should be deemed necessary. This reduces the potential cost of expensive renovations and helps maintain the future affordability of Habitat homes.

Habitat homes vary depending on the community and family's needs. Most commonly built are one storey, single family homes that are designed to take on the look and feel of their neighborhoods. Depending on the size of the family, they range from two to five bedrooms and are usually approximately 850 sq. ft. with size variance depending on personal need.

The need was never greater in 2009 as Habitat teamed with Friesen Tokar Architects to custom build a two-storey home for six family members, one of whom is a quadriplegic. The unique, accessible design enabled the family member back door access through the main floor area to the front deck, along with a main floor suite and independent use of his own bathroom. The Habitat home received a special award of recognition at the City of Winnipeg Accessibility awards.
