cooperlola Posted May 20, 2011 Share Posted May 20, 2011 Having finally reached the stage where I'm heartily sick of putting up with a house that is less than suitable for me - I had a prod at the insurance company today to find out if they'd cough up to have some more works done. You could have knocked me down with a feather when ten minutes later they e-mailed me back and said that they are prepared to do further works and will send out a specialist architect to have a look around and decide what I need.Obviously, I have some ideas (the kitchen is a virtual no-go zone, I can't get safely up the stairs etc) but I wondered if those of you with disabilites might have some other ideas about the kinds of things that can be overlooked. Briefly, I can walk short distances but cannot stand for long periods at a time, and I cannot easily get up from a low chair or seat.I don't want to take anybody for a ride but as we have had to halt our plans for the house because I can't do any work myself, and I'm stuck with my bed in the sitting room because I can't use the upstairs, I do feel that I have a good case for some major works. Anybody on here ever gone through this themselves? Any pointers as to what to expect? How much can I expect them to contribute - for instance, if I have to have my kitchen enlarged and re-modelled (which I think is essential) should they pay for the flooring, given that the current stuff isn't great quality, nor is it in very good condition?
