COLUMN: Renos and special needs

"I’ve always said your house should work for you. It should be built to make your everyday life easier, not harder. But when you have special needs a standard home doesn’t cut it. You might not be able to reach the kitchen cabinets, or get in and out of the bathtub easily, reach light switches, or even leave the house without help. These things can make you feel like a prisoner in your home.
Sometimes it’s not even about convenience — it’s a matter of life or death. What if you couldn’t hear the doorbell or smoke or carbon monoxide alarms? If you can’t hear them you might as well not have them. It’s a huge safety issue. But that’s the reality for more than a million people in Canada living with hearing issues — and that scares me. Can’t imagine how it feels for them."

COLUMN: The reason why basements can be scary
04/11/13 - PostMedia News
"One of the most popular renovation jobs is the basement. Done properly, a finished basement can add a lot more livable space to your home. It usually becomes a place where the kids—and sometimes adults—go to play. What guy doesn’t dream of having a man cave? And a finished basement can be a bonus if you ever want to sell your home.
But when it comes to finishing a basement the most important thing is to make sure it’s properly insulated. Otherwise, you’re just going to create the perfect environment for mould and mildew. That’s not the kind of thing you want your family exposed to. Breathing in mould spores can lead to serious health problems, like respiratory issues."
