Hey folks:

The silence is deafening.  Not a peep from anyone for 4 days, and counting.

Was everyone buried by the snow in the Northeast?   Hibernating?

Busy with Mardi Gras?   Transfixed by the Winter Olympics?

Reminds me of a cartoon of Snoopy, years ago, lying relaxed on the ground, ears outspread, "No sense doing alot of barking if you don't have anything to say."

General Discussion / Architectural Shortcomings
« on: June 04, 2008, 07:23:06 PM »
Time for a new thread.  Architectural shortcomings are a pet peeve of mine.  So many of them are unnecessary.  For example, a generous 36" doorway costs no more to build than a narrow 30" doorway.  Finally, some newer homes like mine have the 36" doorways.  But 1000's of slightly older homes are plagued with narrow doors.  And it's far more complicated and costly to convert doorways afterwards.

So why did it take so long to catch on?  Wheelchairs are no wider today than they were 50 years ago, right?

We had the good fortune to be present during the building of our present home, and could order various accessibility features to be built in.  More on these in a future post.

So, what are you experiences in this area?
