The whole house saga

Back in Spring 2007, Rakey and I decided that it was time for us to look at options for having a wheelchair accessible home. The discussion followed a time where he needed my help in the master bathroom. I went in to help him and between the small space, the sharp corner of the countertop and the towel bar, we laughed so hard that we almost had to call the paramedics because we were just plain STUCK! Afterward we talked about what if there had been a walker or a wheelchair in there too? We talked to a contractor about adapting our D Street house. He told us that he could modify our bathrooms but the hallway was still too narrow, as were ALL the doorways in the house. His advice was for us to sell that house and add to it take the money we would spend on remodeling and find a house that had enough space.

So the search began...
