Accessible Housing Model in Baltimore

In 2006, Eric Anderson, a universal design specialist and contractor, purchased a small home in suburban Baltimore and renovated it with 70 accessible and Universal Design concepts. Since then, he has not sold or rented the home and instead is using it as a model that consumers, professional, and advocates can tour to better understand how design can be implemented in a functional way.

According to Eric, many visitors can't believe that it's an accessible home. Visitors also comment that they can't believe how much larger the home appears considering it is only 1,000 square feet. The home truly blends in well with the community. Plans are in the works for a brand new accessible home to be built in the Baltimore area.
