Wheelchair-Accessible Toilet Installation
Project: Accessible Home, Episode 10, Part 2
Contractors install special bathroom fixtures and hardware, which have been specially designed for use by people with disabilities. The project house also gets a real lift in the form of an elevator. It's chain-driven and hidden in a closet, enabling a homeowner with disabilities to access the home's second floor.
