We’re not unfamiliar with tiny houses and homes that can be wheeled to where they need to be. This tiny house home tour is extra special though, as it was designed specifically with wheelchair users in mind.
It can be an emotional and often confusing time when a family member finds themselves in a wheelchair, or unwell. All of a sudden, many of the familiar ways of getting around the house can present new challenges. This tiny house aims to help a person through this transition. It’s a great space for helping wheelchair users adjust to reduced mobility. What’s more, it provides an easy and suitable space for them to live.
This tiny home mostly functions as an extra bedroom that can be attached to a house by the trailer. It can be accessed through a connecting door or with an extra ramp.
Inside, there is a comfy bedroom area with a table that pulls down to just the right height for wheelchair users.
There’s a lot of lighting and plenty of windows so you can look out and not feel isolated. This track system runs through from the bed to the bathroom to aid with moving from one area to another.
The bathroom door opens in different directions, making it easily accessible from whichever side you’re coming from. There are also handles and plenty of grip around the bathroom for maneuverability.
All the faucets and plug sockets are at a suitable height for wheelchair users, saving them from having to uncomfortably reach or bend down lower.
In addition to being wheelchair friendly, the Wheel Pad trailer home is also eco-friendly. Many of the materials are sustainably sourced, and the trailer is built with many wooden elements.
In addition to many of the well thought out elements that make mobility easier, what’s really nice about this tiny home is that it actually feels like a nice place to be . We’re sure there are plenty of people who will find this a welcome addition to their home. All in all, we can’t wait to see how the Wheel Pad develops and evolves in the future!
