The MEDCottage plans are for review and study. The price reflects a cost that allows an individual or family to determine the viability of this option. A licensed contractor is suggested in the evaluation and construction of a MEDCottage should you choose to use these plans. The packet includes a full set of plans, photos from the construction process and finished pictures as well. The MEDCottage classic plans show a ceiling track, the structure is engineered for a ceiling mounted trapeze stabilization system but is not engineered for the transfer and mobility of bariatric patients. A direct material cost estimate is likely achieved at Lowe’s or Home Depot.
We have placed the MEDCottage in locations such as Alexandria, Virginia, just six miles from the White House. Also, in Botetourt County, nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains and is one of the most remote locations in the eastern United States. Both of these residents passed away this year and both spent their final days very comfortable just a short distance from the people they loved most.
