A HI TECH home of the future has been created for a family in Caernarfon.

From doors that slide into walls, motorised kitchen worktops, wheelchair charging points and hoists that run from the bed to the bathroom, a new bungalow at Cae’r Ysgol is brimming with the latest adaptive technology. Commissioned by ADRA and built by Beech Developments, the bungalow has been designed to create a comfortable and accessible home.

Jason McGee, Operations Manager at Beech Developments said: “This was a brand new challenge we were very willing to take on, as it included so many technological features, a real passion of ours. Creating something so bespoke enabled us to get into the detail of what would really make a difference to the lives of the residents and we are thrilled with the results.” The home is not only fully adaptive but in line with Beech Developments award winning standards for sustainability. It is A rated for energy efficiency. It is on the new Cae’r Ysgol development off Ffordd Eryri, Caernarfon. Despite the contract completion being set for July 2020, Beech Developments worked around the clock to get the home finished in time for Christmas. Jason added: “The innovations are truly astounding and we want to wish the new residents all the very best in their brand new ‘home of the future’.” The home includes: a motorised bath to assist carers; a motorised sink with remote control functions; a motorised changing bed located in shower space; separately controlled spotlights for night time bathing; a door which slides into wall saving room space; a fully accessible hoist with link to the assisted bathroom; a motorised worktop in the kitchen; wheelchair charging points, an external car port affording full protection from external space to the inside of the house and non slip flooring laid throughout the property
