REMODEL – Widening the Hallways

For wheelchair access, we had two hallways and six doors widened so wheelchair can fit easily through to main living areas, two bedrooms and a bathroom.

Hallways were widened four inches.

Before and after of Hallway 1:

44 DURING Aug 46 AFTER - hallway to kitchen

Before and after of Hallway 2 (thermostat was lowered):

62 BEFORE - hall way to bedrooms 64 AFTER - new hallway to bedrooms

Much better path and it makes the house look a lot bigger from all angles.
