Natural light can make your home feel more spacious, and it can even improve your overall mood and health. When designing an accessible home, it’s important to ensure that your source of natural light is easy to adjust without compromising your safety.
Skylights offer an accessible solution.
Skylights allow plenty of light to shine into your home throughout the day. Since they are located on the roof, they capture the sun at more angles int he sky than do windows placed on walls. A skylight, when properly positioned opens up your space and makes it feel more relaxing and natural. This is incredibly important if you spend a lot of time inside and have limited access to the outdoors.

Coastal cargo lifters are designed to hold up to 250# and carry your cargo upstairs where you want it to be. The caged platform is extremely durable, and the up/down, and call/send controls allow you to control the unit whether you’re standing beside it, or at the other end of the stairs.
The car and drive system is pre-installed and runs on a defined track that is easy to place and set-up. There are no pulleys to worry about, and the 1/2 hp motor means this machine has plenty of lift for whatever you need to move. Plus, the car itself is 36” × 24” wide, and features 24” side panels. This make the car wide enough to carry the vast majority of items you need to haul. Keep in mind that it is not large enough for you to safely use as a riding elevator.

At Totally Accessible Homes, we carry eight different lift systems for you to choose from. We have everything from temporary lift systems that can be broken down and stored when you no longer need them, to permanent systems that stay in place precisely where you want them.
Because no two people are the same, no two sets of needs are identical, we carry a variety of lifts for you to choose from. In fact, our largest lift can comfortably raise a person weighing up to 800 lbs. This means that regardless of your size, our lifts can help you regain the mobility you desire. This makes our lift systems ideal whether you need them temporarily for surgical recovery, or more permanently due to the effects of aging or any permanent medical condition you may be facing.
