Tour a convenient home.....
I want to make sure you know about the series I'm writing on our blog. Please subscribe to the RSS feed (orange button) and share with others via Facebook or Twitter.
Since January, I've described, starting at the street, how to boost the convenience and ease of a home whether new or remodeled. You can make many of the changes with a trip to the hardware store so not everything requires a general contractor.
No house can be perfectly UD because people are different. But consider the "Peter Pan homes" (i.e. a house where nobody changes) we occupy today, the individual must adapt to remain in the house instead of living in a home in which modification is the exception rather than the rule. Isn't that backwards?
I hope you'll join our tour and let others know too.
HB 1950 Update:
The General Assembly concludes its 46-day session tomorrow. The Livable Home Tax Credit amendment, which increases the already budgeted per claim amount from $2,000 to $5,000 and includes builders/developers, awaits the Governor's signature following unanimous passage from both the House and Senate.
Broadcast network executives must be freaking that their days are numbered. TV as we know it is dying because there's so much you can watch for free on-line (assuming you have Internet access).
For example, are you familiar with TED (Technology, Entertainment and Design)? Founded as one event in 1984, TEDTalks are now a global set of fascinating presentations curated by the American private, non-profit Sapling Foundation to share "ideas worth spreading".
