    Thanks everyone! My parents own the place. We do not want to do any MAJOR reonvations because the plan is to move to a bungalow within a reasonable amount of time and OT is just trying to make it work for now because I really need to get off my knees/shoulders.

      the doorway to my bedroom is at the end of the hallway and it was too small to go through in wheelchair. i just removed the door and frame as suggested earlier. it couldn't be widened because it is a load bearing wall. load bearing walls would need to be supported to have work done on those areas and then reinforced if any work is done to the load bearing wall, this can be pricey if a contactor will even do it. none would even do mine. also, you cannot put a pocket door in a load bearing wall
