Progress continues at Universal Design Living Laboratory

The Universal Design Living Laboratory is a demonstration home in Columbus, Ohio, built to illustrate the power of universal design. Marvin Windows and Doors is a sponsor of the project.
The home is the brainchild of Rosemarie Rossetti, whose lower body was paralyzed after an accident. According to the group’s statement:
Life in a wheelchair inspired her to build home based on the concept of universal design, which makes a facility’s level of livability beneficial to the widest possible range of people in the widest range of situations without special or separate design. The home will be able to accommodate people of all sizes, ages and abilities.
I encourage you to check out the project’s progress in the UDLL’s photo galleries and this “virtual flyover” video:
