What is wrong with this picture?

A lot!

Hear from Julie — in her natural environment


Accessible does not mean ugly;

create beauty inside and out

Colour, beautiful tile and stunning art all are possible in an accessible bathroom. And with new designs of features like grab bars and shower benches, everyone will just see beauty.

It's what goes on behind the tile and drywall that really matters.

Have you ever pulled a grab bar off the wall? Julie has — and more than once. You don't want accidents like that to happen at your completed project. When you are finished ABDC you will:

  • understand the importance of backing walls for future grab bars
  • have physical energy-saving tips for your clients
  • have the insight required to find accessible storage spaces throughout the bathroom

Go beyond the building code

I hear you saying: "how can I do that when the code is already so complicated?" Designing and constructing accessible bathrooms is easy once you know the right questions to ask your client.

Julie will "walk" you through the process of learning your client's needs and helping them make decisions about placement and fixtures that work for them.

Your clients will thank you.

Be a leader in your industry

Society is finally beginning to understand the importance of accessibility and designing with the future in mind. When you know the ins and outs of building better bathrooms word will spread and you will stand out for the quality of your work.

A better life for your customers

Having more energy for 'life' is a pretty good selling feature, wouldn't you say? That is what an accessible bathroom means to your client - less energy wasted in unsafe and inconvenient bathrooms; more energy for living.

Do it right the first time

We learn by making mistakes, right? With so many little decisions to make, I will help you learn that they all add up in the end. Let's make sure everything is exactly where it needs to be.
