Emily was excited to see her new kitchen for the first time when she came home for spring break from Adelphi University. She is really enjoying being able to cook on her own. Her mother , Ellen says “our dream kitchen is finally a reality” !
Both Emily and her mother have limited mobility due to Larsen’s Syndrome, a rare congenital disorder that affects bones and joints. Volunteer Architect, Mark Wittenberg and Vita Burdi of DJ’s Home Improvements, designed a kitchen especially adapted to meet the abilities of mother and daughter. Emily’s space has a countertop that is low with open space to wheel-in underneath. It has a small sink with an easy to use single lever faucet. The low profile induction cook top lets her slide pots on and off . The side by side refrigerator allows Emily to reach the freezer. Other details include: pull out drawers for pots, easy to reach outlets and light switches.
The construction went very smoothly and the Ladau’s say that Vita and Jerry Burdi of DJ’s construction “have been an absolute pleasure to work with”.
