I think this is a great idea because it will open up more opportunities for disabled people to buy and live in a house that is fit for their needs and style. I believe that everyone should be able to live in a house where they feel comfortable and don't have to worry about how to access things around the house.
cander05's comment, March 9, 2014 12:41 AM
This would be a great idea, as it would provide everybody with the opportunity to own and feel comfortable in their own house.
Wyatt Nelson's comment, March 9, 2014 12:53 AM
This is a good idea because disabled people can have hard times doing things in their house.
