SGT Strickland

Returning from a mission in Zabul, Afghanistan on February 2, 2010, Legrand’s last memory is being struck by a large explosion. He survived, but his Commander and the driver did not. Critically injured, Legrand was flown to the nearest hospital where he underwent bilateral above-knee amputations and was diagnosed with traumatic brain injury (TBI). The Gary Sinise Foundation selected Compass Design Build to design and construct Sgt. Strickland and his family a specially adapted smart home in Wildwood, Missouri.

Universal design and smart home features of this home include: an open floor plan with wider hallways and doorways, zero entry doors with ADA thresholds at all exterior door units, a curb less roll-in shower, a home automation system with the ability to voice or Ipad control audio/video, door locks, HVAC, security cameras, blinds, lighting, ceiling fans, and much, much more. For the elegance and luxury that are signature qualities added to this home, Compass Design Build has won the praises of the Gary Sinise Foundation. We are proud to have created this unique experience for the Strickland family. Click to view the Home Dedication Ceremony for U.S. Army SGT Legrand Strickland.
