I had to do some modifications on the house, kept them to a minimum.  I didn’t want to label my house as, “somebody disabled lives there.”  I didn’t want people to be able to drive down the street and say, “That’s where the disabled person lives.”  So, I only just did some slight modifications to my bathroom.  And my bedroom was on the second floor, fortunately for me, I lived in a big house, we converted our dining room into a bedroom; put some French doors on it and what-not.  And I didn’t make any other significant changes to the house.
