However, they have a (to my mind serious) drawback. That is, they make every unit that has one inaccessible to persons in wheelchairs (unless, of course the porches are in the unit's "back yard) and the front of the unit is on grade, but then they only are transitional between the unit and its semiprivate "backyard." if there is one.)Joani Swan's Market Cohousing Oakland, CA _________________________________________________________________Cohousing-L mailing list -- Unsubscribe, archives and other info at: http://www.cohousing.org/cohousing-L/
