Universal Appeal

Accessible Home

Setting our record for the most published project is  ….drumroll, please…. the Gasterland house.

Barb and Hans’ house was just published in the book “The Accessible Home” by Deborah Pierce.  Previous books that profiled their house include “Universal Design for the Home,” by Wendy A. Jordan, “The Simple Home” by Sarah Nettleton, and “Dream Homes Minnesota.”

Six other publications have also profiled their amazing story.  Barb occasionally uses a wheelchair while coping with a degenerative-joint disease and may use it more in the future.  She spent two years testing products proposed for use in the house, under her doctor’s guidance and our assistance, to determine her chemical sensitivity.

The house and site are accessible throughout, and the design allows for future adaptations as needs change.  Since Barb and Hans have a 17-inch height difference, areas throughout the home have been customized for specific use by each of them.

Barb is a master gardener and beautiful raised beds have been integrated with the architecture.  We collected and directed all of the roof water into gardens around the house.  The gardens are shared with their flock of chickens which keep an eco-balance in the yard and produce eggs on site!  View more photos
