Who? My wonderful wife and I, both in wheelchairs.

What, How Big and How Much? a 350 square foot house, grandfathered in, with a 900 square foot house for our caretaker and her two kids. The two houses and lot? 150,000. The contractor woes (the first destsroyed the house, and the second declared bankruptcy), lawyer bills, and problems to make it accessible? $60,000 which should have been $15,000.

Where? In Denver, in the city limits.

Why? So we could live together in a space we could take care of ourselves–with minimal caretaking assistance.
.
When? We moved in September 2010. My lovely wife got to be in the house for 5 weeks before she passed away in October 2010.
