On the outside, the Ryfa's home is a traditional ranch, giving no indication to its unique accessible design.
What other features does the Ryfa house have that make their lives easier?
At the time of Danielle's birth, the Ryfas were living in an old farm house (circa 1857), with multiple levels, steps into the family room and living room, the majority of bedrooms upstairs and a narrow staircase that turned as it went up.
As Danielle grew, so too did the issues the Ryfas faced in moving their daughter throughout the house.
The Ryfas began working with Adaptive Architecture to find property to build a new house--totally accessible for Danielle, but not institutional looking in any way.
Rosenblum also took the Ryfas to see another accessible house he had designed in the upstate New York area.
The Ryfas wanted to make sure Danielle has full access to all parts of the house, which is why they installed a residential elevator.
Ryfa, who has won here in the last two races, was the fastest even in the final free practice in which he clocked 58.285 seconds run.
From the pilot's perspective I have the small individual parts worked out, especially considering the VTM and the set up for Gates 6, 7, 8," said Ryfa adding that he was still trying to increase the G in the VTM because he was not pulling too hard.
