Mr Mushtaq originally enquired in October 2018 with a view to wanting to create a ground floor WC for his Mum who struggled with ongoing problems with mobility.
Residing in a property with difficult stairs Mr Mushtaq was keen to explore all his options with regards to creating such a solution in order for his mum to safely maintain her independence while offering the whole family complete peace of mind.
With such a broad brief an appointment was made for More Ability Designer and Surveyor, Nigel, to visit Mr Mushtaq’s property and offer expert help and advice with regards to potential solutions.
Having spent a number of hours on site and presenting three very different solutions with ideas of cost, Nigel left Mr Mushtaq, who was a very thorough gentleman, with ample food for thought.
Remaining in contact through-out it was a matter of months later that a decision was made which resulted in Mr Mushtaq and family deciding that the most practical option would be to convert an area of their existing garage into a self-contained accessible WC.
Still wanting to maintain storage and space for a car while allowing easy access to key services that were featured in the garage, like the fuse box, Nigel proposed building a self-contained room which would only be accessible through the existing cloak pantry.
Lifting the floor by nearly a foot to facilitate level access from the main house substantial building work was required in order to support the cloakroom housing.
Fully tiled the accessible downstairs WC was designed with Nigel’s helping hand and featured a run of fitted furniture that housed a back-to-wall WC with concealed basin and a semi-recessed basin.
“Nigel took his time to understand exactly what is needed and how it can be done. He is a very nice gentleman.”
