Schaffer Construction – Designs for Life, a Loudoun County based Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS), specializes in providing aging in place modifications for our seniors and special needs remodeling services for people with disabilities.
We modify bathrooms and showers so they are wheelchair accessible, barrier-free, and safe.
Here is a comment from a member of the (BFAC) Building For All committee in Fairfax, VA, regarding Tony Schaffer and our architect. The Committee was invited to see an accessible bathroom we remodeled in an Arlington high-rise.
“The Arlington Penthouse unit was nice to begin with, but the Universal Design (UD) features you two developed are both stunning and brilliant. The highlights are plentiful, but I was particularly impressed by the barn door into the bedroom, and the PERFECT barrier free shower.
I’d love to show that shower off to every builder, designer or policy maker who ever told me that it couldn’t be done without a step or threshold. You two have demonstrated how simply and beautifully such a wonderful shower is possible, without taking up excessive space either.
I’ve always known that you two were top notch experts in UD, but it was especially impressive to see your quality work in person. I took several pictures and I hope it’s okay to use them for educational purposes. That exceptional unit wouldn’t be possible without the best architect and contractor in the business. Way to go! A job VERY well done.”
