March 2012 Yard of the Month

The home of Mary Passmore at 1310 Comanche is recognized as the March 2012 Yard of the Month.

Mary provided the following: “My daughter, Katie, and I moved onto Comanche Dr. in August 2011. I grew up in Dallas and graduated from RISD schools, where my in-laws, Bill and Sue Passmore, worked and taught. This house needed to be retrofitted to accommodate Katie’s wheelchair, so, with help of Richardson Residential (Justin McMillin), Finley Design (Shelley Stagner), and JDS Design (Julie Woolridge Simons), a plan was implemented. Justin turned an existing bathroom into a roll-in shower for Katie; Shelly designed the interior so that Katie could have access to every room in the house; and Julie made the wheelchair ramp disappear into the new landscape. I look forward to living in such a friendly and close-knit neighborhood. I smile every time I drive up to my new home!”
