By SHELLEY RIGGER

About 200 battle-weary homeowners association officers and members swapped war stories and exchanged strategies at a forum in Davidson on Thursday. The grim scenarios they described left the HOA experts on the stage unfazed.

The event, “Your HOA & You: Who Rules the Neighborhood?” at Davidson Day School, was part of the Public Conversations series hosted by WFAE-FM.

State Rep. Rodney Moore (D-Mecklenburg) said he often hears reports like these: Read the full story

Thousands of Charlotte-area residents live in neighborhoods that have a homeowners association (HOA). HOAs are often praised for keeping communities cleaner, safer and more livable.

WFAE’s Public Conversations series explores the pros and cons of living in an HOA community, along with the rights and responsibilities of HOA residents and boards. “Your HOA & You: Who Rules the Neighborhood?” is Thurs., Feb. 6, 7-8:30 p.m., at Davidson Day School, in Davidson.

Making a home more handicap accessible

teal michel bugDuring my design career, I have been involved in numerous renovation and remodeling projects throughout the house. Some have included making spaces more accessible. Having just had foot surgery, I am reminded how practical and important an accessible home is if you ever have a foot or leg injury or hand surgery, if you use a wheelchair or walker, and as you age.

Temperatures will fall below 10 degrees early Tuesday, unusually low for North Carolina. That has people across the region preparing – and offering advice. One of the major risks for homeowners in extremely cold weather is frozen pipes.

Davidson-based builder Rodney Graham, of John Marshall Custom Homes, said homeowners should prepare.

“People in the south don’t think about their water lines freezing, because temperatures in the single digits are so rare in this area,” Graham said Monday. “Southern homes are not built to withstand these types of temperatures, so homeowners need to take some precautions to minimize the risk of a water line freezing.” Read the full story
