Wall Street Journal honors Ohio couple's universal design efforts

From the Wall Street Journal's Retirement Planning section:

Universal Design: In 1998, Rosemarie Rossetti was paralyzed from the waist down in an accident. Today, she and her husband are building a home (pictured) outside Columbus, Ohio, that will serve as a "universal design living laboratory." The couple will live in the house, but also will open their doors to builders and consumers to promote construction of homes that allow families to "age in place." Dr. Rossetti has built a Web site where people can learn about the project, follow the house's progress and find extensive information about universal design. (In particular, see the site's "Resources.") Inspiring and enlightening.
