On page 18 of the universal design article in your November issue, you show a picture of a curbless shower. Our firm has been contracted to create such a shower. We would appreciate it if you have any further information or could point us in the right direction to obtain more information on how to design and construct such a unit.

I've been in the business for almost 30 years and enjoy your magazine. I have a spelling question regarding your column ("Editor's Notebook") in the September issue. The "Twin Cities'...Remodelors Showcase" and the "Home Builders Association of Greater Chicago Remodelors Council" are spelled with "or" at the end instead of "er." I am not familiar with this spelling and wondered, what's up? Please clarify, as I write about remodeling.

Thanks for your informative article in the recent Professional Remodeler (November) regarding lead-safe work practices. I was not able to find the info at www.nahb.org.
If you can send me the link, I would appreciate it. I am very interested in this topic in light of the fact that we do about $1 million a year in gross sales almost exclusively as remodelers.
I get several trade magazines and look over each issue for interesting and useful articles. Your magazine is one of the better ones.
