Kitchen of the Week: Good Looking and Accessible to All

When Dave and Judi Cornis found that houses on the market didn’t seem compatible with Dave’s wheelchair, they decided to build a home that would suit their needs. The empty-nest couple chose a scenic site in Port Townsend, Washington, a community about 40 miles northwest of Seattle that is also near two of their three adult children. Their streamlined and flexible 1,325-square-foot timber-frame home is sustainable, with a kitchen that incorporates universal design elements that make it user friendly. “I wanted to be able to use this kitchen without struggling as much as I have in the past,” Dave says.

Working with interior architect and designer Tracy Ronaldson, they created a durable kitchen with natural materials, well-placed appliances and simple finishes — a clean and warm space.
