Visitability

Visitability is a national movement to build homes with three primary accessible design features. They are:

1. One zero step entrance on an accessible path of travel from the street, sidewalk or driveway
2. Doorways that provide 32 inches clear space throughout the home’s main floor and hallways that provide 36 inches of clear width
3. Basic access to a half or (preferably) full bath on the main floor

Visitable homes offer features that benefit our community, whether it be new parents, older adults who wish to remain in their home, people with mobility needs, emergency services, and many others. These three primary requirements are often paired with many other simple, low-cost features to maximize usability of a home.

It is our hope that new homes built in Montana incorporate features of Visitability so that our communities become stronger, more inviting and homeowner-friendly places!

To promote this idea, we’ve launched a website – www.visitablemt.org – that features pictures of Visitable Montana homes and has other information about Visitability.

We are looking for more pictures of Visitable homes from all over Montana, so if you know of one, please send in pictures (with the owner’s permission).
