"There in the mist, enormous, majestic, and silent, stood the Great Wall of China. Solitarily, with the indifference of nature herself, it crept up the mountain side and slipped down to the depth of the valley."

What a sight that must have been W. Somerset Maugham, and here at No Place Like Home Remodeling, we do build 'great walls,' but just not on that scale.

To say the least, this home owner was in need of a new stackable block retaining wall. Here at No Place Like Home Remodeling we take questions and concerns and turn them into something functional, like the below, 'great wall.'

"[Feeling] the breeze going through your hair, hitting the ramps and getting air, grinding the rails and riding around, listen to your wheels what a wonderful sound."

Yes, Chris Yarnell, all of that is certainly true! However, At No Place Like Home Remodeling, we focus less on "heelflips and kickflips," and more ON providing ramps for accessibility scooters with maximum speeds of 4.5 mph.

This disabled homeowner was in need of a new, fully redesigned front deck, built completely out of treated lumber with an aluminum ramp system attached. At No Place Like Home Remodeling, we exist to help our senior, handicapped, and disabled clients.

We understand how valuable the term "low maintenance" is to our aging clients who need our aluminum ramp systems. We understand the value of being able to rent a "low maintenance" aluminum ramp system when a situation may arise (a sports injury, general surgery, a work-related injury and so on).

We also understand that sometimes, you might need a simple aluminum ramp system longer than a rental, and you might need it faster than having it installed by our team, so that is why we now offer our product section.

"One step at a time is good walking."

That is spot on! This Chinese proverb is a direct reflection of today's grab bars.

As you will see, in the before and after photos below, safety was a huge concern when it came to this set of steps which lead up to the patio. The homeowner had been using the patio door as a way of bracing herself in order to get up the last step and into her house.

At No Place Like Home Remodeling, accessibility, well, that's our forte. After assessing the situation, we installed a diagonal bar spanning the majority of the steps and a vertical bar over the last step allowing the homeowner complete stability as she enters the patio.

"You can keep a dog; but it is the cat who keeps people, because cats find humans useful domestic animals."

Ah, yes, George Mikes, the love of a cat. Here at No Place Like Home Remodeling, we provide services, that, well, benefit the 'useful domestic animal,' which in turn, benefits the furry feline.

This homeowner was in need of replacing her screened-in porch. Weather had taken a toll. Rotted wood, distressed chipped paint and several 'feline' type rips in the screen, which had been patched over with tape.

As we began the remodeling process, we quickly realized the admiration and respect she had for her animals and that this reworking process was necessary from a safety standpoint, but also, it was a relief for her knowing that her cats could go outside on the porch and play without fear of them pushing through the screen or pushing open the door.

"When the well's dry, we know the worth of water."

That's absolute truth by Benjamin Franklin. However, when water's streaming through your front yard, 'well,' that's kind of a different story.

At No Place Like Home Remodeling, we are sometimes tasked with a compelling situation. This home owner, in order to go from her front door to her driveway, she had to walk through a natural water source (a low running spring), and use protruding river bed rocks as 'homemade' stepping stones.

Needless to say, this lady does not live on the frontier. And after careful consideration and planning, the team at No Place Like Home Remodeling, took a potentially hazardous situation and turned it into the below twenty-foot concrete sidewalk with a capped handrail.

Clean Cut- Tub Cut Out- An Affordable Option To Increased Independence

Before:

We were contacted to assess the home of a veteran who is cared for by his spouse. The spouse was having difficulty assisting the veteran into/out of their tub safely due to decreasing mobility. The veteran uses a walker for mobility and the doorways were too narrow to allow safe passage without turning. With the progressive nature of his disease, the spouse was looking for options to provide her spouse safe accessibility now and into the future.

After:

Due to resources available, we suggested the Clean Cut Tub Cut Out. We installed this system for the veteran's bathtub and 3 grab bars to provide safe accessibility to enter and exit the bathtub and toilet areas with the assistance of his spouse. In addition to this, we widened the doorways to the bathroom and the veteran's bedroom, to allow him to use his walker safely while accessing necessary areas of his home.

An Accessible Bathroom...Improved Quality of Life

BEFORE

We were contacted by the veteran home owner and his spouse. The veteran, due to medical conditions, could no longer access his bathtub and would soon be wheelchair bound and unable to access the bathroom at all due to the narrow doorway. The veteran was having difficulty rising from the toilet.             

AFTER

We developed a plan to widen the bathroom doorway and install an outswing door, giving the client the most space possible in the bathroom. We replaced the standard toilet/ raised toilet seat with a 20” handicapped height toilet as well as grab bars to assist in rising.  Finally, we removed the standard tub/shower and installed a walk-in shower with grab bars and hand-held shower.  To make the job complete, we replaced the worn linoleum with 12” tile.

 

 

A Ramp With NO Time To Spare

BEFORE:

We received a call from the lovely spouse of a gentleman who had had a medical event leaving him unable to walk. A man who was very active just 2 short months ago was faced with the daunting task of regaining strength and function through intensive rehab.  She was notified that her husband would be ready to return home in about a week. Although he had began to walk using a walker, he would need ramp access into their 4 step entry home.

We quickly met with the spouse, developed a plan and scheduled construction of the ramp .  The ramp was complete and ready for her husband prior to discharge from the rehab center.

AFTER:

We constructed a 24' ramp, removing the brick pavers to make for a safe and stable transition.

From the client: “Thanks again for getting the ramp done so quickly and the excellent job you did!”

 

Ramps- Ensuring Safe Entry and Exit From Your Home

BEFORE:

Our client recently sustained injuries that will require him to utilize a wheelchair as his main form of mobility for the near future as he continues with his rehab process. His home is a split level design with 2 step entry. A stair lift was already in place to allow for safe mobility on the interior stairs. We were contacted to design and construct a ramp to allow for safe entry and exit into the front entrance of the home.

AFTER:

We constructed a 5'x7' landing at the entrance to the home with a 10'x3' ramp leading to the driveway. Our client is now able to safely enter and exit his home, whether it be for doctor appointments, leisure/activities of choice, or in the case of an emergency.

FROM THE CLIENT:

"We are very pleased with the discussion, proposals, professional, but personable rending of services and awesome final product. We will definitely recommend to others."

Door to Increased Independence and Peace of Mind

Before:

Our client was unable to utilize the sliding glass door as the main entry/exit from her home due to lack of strength necessary to  pull the door open and closed. Since this is the main entrance for the client and where her ramp is located we were contacted to assist in developing a solution.

After:

We installed a swing in french door with lever handle and touch pad locking system. This allows our client to independently enter and  exit  her home. The touch pad locking system allows her to secure her home without the dexterity  and fine motor coordination  necessary to operate a standard key lock.

From the Client:

“I couldn’t be happier. I love my door. They were very professional.”

 

 

Home SafeTy and Accessibility: A Must for this Veteran

Before:

Client was using suction cup style grab bars in the shower, which have the  potential to loose suction while in use- causing a fall. Also in place were 2 standard height toilets without grab bars to assist in rising from the seat. He was having difficulty entering and exiting his home with 2 steps and no handrail.

After:

We installed 3 grab bars using hollow wall anchor systems to ensure safety of use for the veteran. 1 22” height toilet to allow for easy rise from the seat. The 17” toilet that was removed from upstairs was placed downstairs to replace the 14” toilet, along with an 18” grab bar to assist in rising from the toilet seat. Two wrought iron hand rails were installed on the front porch to allow the veteran safe entry and exit of his home.

From the Client:

“Job well done.”
