The article presents a first-hand account of author's dreamhouse. The house consists a three- bedroom ranch with big windows and lots of closet space. The master bath has a small stall shower with a built-in seat, probably the feature that more than any other told me this house had our name onit. It has a two-car garage, direct access to a very private but rather small backyard, and a floor plan that has a nice traffic flow. Between the time author bought the house, the disease, multiple sclerosis has continued its relentless attack on his body, so he periodically made some small adjustments and then some larger changes to accommodate ever- increasing disability.
