Make sure a realtor puts "accessible" in the headline of the house description. A lot of people who need adaptive homes have a very hard time finding them and they usually factor the price of making adaptive changes into their purchase budget. I expect that it would take longer to sell, though.

    I have a beautiful roll under sink with storage now. We went with a custom cabinet builder because custom also meant fewer cabinets and work arounds on installation. http://www.dcinteriorsllc.com/portfolio.html The 2nd and 3rd pics in the 4th row is ours. Click on the pics for a better look but bad angle to see my roll under. The spouse's vanity around the corner has a full undersink cabinet but nothing reaches the floor so cleaning is easy too. We had these made in bamboo and it comes in several finishes. The company that made our minimalist cabinets actually does more in the heavy stuff but has real pros doing the work. http://www.platowoodwork.com/index.html

    And even the IRS has recognized that most access renovations do not add to the value of homes on resale. When we redid our first place we kept records to the penny for resell purposes and taxes. After reading the tax code when we bought and renovated it they were needed. Now, we kept an itemized list but doubt it will be needed. Oh, our last kitchen we did up in Kitchenaid cabinets. I loved them! When we decide to redo the kitchen or guest bathroom we'll be looking at those first. An entire kitchen of Plato would break the bank.

    You can find local cabinet makers that will work with you too. Something I was against and the contractor/designer talked us into was undermounting the sinks.They look great and less water rolls down my elbows. We're fans now. And those pictures were staged to use at a NARI show out here. I mean a rug in a bathroom for a wheeler? Yea, no! Same with plants. My husband kills them as a hobby.
