Small Houses and Aging Boomers
Hi all. Something has been on my mind lately that I thought I would post about.
As we get older and have health issues, it becomes more important that our homes are acessible. Recently, I had my hip replaced and when I came home from rehab, I found out that my walker coud not get into my hall bathroom door! Luckily, when I added a half bath last winter I put in a 36" wide door. (Thank goodness).
I had already removed my bathtub and replaced it with a walk in shower,which is working out good for me.
Like most of you, I am working on my small house, room by room. But now I can see the importance of small changes that can make a lot of difference as I get older.
I have a 5 year plan to expand my hall bath (using some closet space in my spare bedroom) to enlarge the doorway and arrange it to be more acssible (I plan to be here until.................) lol.
