    No, and you can bet she's a happy camper ever since the "For Sale" realtor's sign went up in front of the house. The residence is so close that puts the sign almost in the road, and if she hadn't been sick these past months she'd be over here cleaning it and offering tours.

    I live on the top floor of a condo and I am also the HOA president. My injury level is C-2 incomplete. Since the unit is on one level everything is accessible. I have been living in this building for 10 years, and so far no regrets. However, I do need the elevator in order to get outside.

    Pros:
    No one lives above me.

    Cons:
    Electricity goes out.
    I live in earthquake country.
    Fire in the building.

    WOW!! I hope it's a big apartment, I'm having visions of you stuck behind some amps and a drum set abd you can't get out.

    Good news I made some calls for you, and there's plenty of room at some of the Sr centers and they have lots of nosey old ladies who would love to have tea with you

    T10, live with wife, 2 dogs, and 1 cat.

    We are in a 3-2-2 with a pool and big outbuilding on an acre, bought pre-sci. It's one level, had to rip out carpet and put in wood floors, widen all the doors to 36", redo master bath. Didn't do anything to kitchen, wife is the cook in the family, I can get to everything if needed.

    Now have to pay for lawn and pool care, adds a lot to monthly expenses. We plan on making a pottery studio in outbuilding now that I don't need it for motorcycle storage/workarea. We plan on being here for awhile, but somewhere down the line it will make sense to move to a condo or something with no upkeep issues.

    Juke - sorry to hear you are losing your home. I just read in the latest NM mag that there is an active sci support group in Placerville, maybe they can help you find a new spot if you need a lead.

    An important feature to consider if you live alone as I do. Most new condos require sprinklers which can save your life. That's the one downside to my current townhouse.

    I bought a three bedroom two bath three story house. But I have never seen the upstairs or the basement. I live with my wife of eight years and my fourteen year old son. We live in a small town where wheel chair accessibility is still something in the future.

    As a matter of fact last week we received six inches of snow over night and we could not get out of the house. The snow had piled up against the door so tight Deb had to squeeze out to shovel the snow away so we could get outside. Needless to say he going outdoors right now is beyond my first goals. I do my best to keep my mind active by writing and playing computer games. This may sound nerdy but my favorite game right now is chess
