I bought my first condo in 1980 when interest rates were sky high. But that didn’t matter. I was ready to be in my own dwelling.
It was still under construction, so I had an opportunity to modify it for a guy with crutches.
As a one-floor duplex, it had just two steps to the front entrance. To avoid using the front entrance altogether, I had the builders create a doorway from the garage to the master bedroom.
That gave me the flexibility to back my car into the garage and step directly into my bedroom. I always kept my walker next to the bedroom door, so I could enter my condo without my crutches and keep them in the back seat of my car when I needed them while not at home.
Strange, I know, but it worked.
