"My disability exists not because I use a wheelchair, but because the broader environment isn't accessible."

Those were compelling words by Stella Young.

As No Place Like Home Remodeling has progressed over the years, we've found that those who seek accessiblity for their loved ones, are oftentimes, in the same position at the end of the day. No Place Like Home Remodeling believes as Stella Young did, that accessibility should not be a luxury, it should be commonplace and readily available.    

The below ramp not only benefits the initial one in need, it also makes life easier on the ailing spouse, along with all the aid workers that rotate shifts on a daily basis. Stop putting off a brighter future by reclaiming your independence. Call No Place Like Home Remodeling and start putting the pieces of normality back in your life today! 

"How many dawns, chill from his rippling rest. The seagull’s wings shall dip and pivot him--O Sleepless as the river under thee..."

Wait, this is not the Brooklyn Bridge by Hart Crane.

Our poetry at No Place Like Home Remodeling, well, it goes a little more like this, "Neighbor: O how I wish to cross this stream without getting my feet wet... Home Owner: Okay, you can, use the bridge."

At No Place Like Home Remodeling, we focus on making all aspects of your property accessible. We 'bridge' the gap. With limited access in their front yard, this home owner can now comfortably host back yard events and family gatherings with ease.

Cobblestone Wine Cellar

"Wanna Get Away?" Well, maybe you're not boarding a Southwest Airlines flight to Cancun or skiing the slopes in Park City, Utah, but, everyone's in need of a relaxing destination.

Our philosophy at No Place Like Home Remodeling is for those that would like to remain at home can and do so. Along with accessibility, we promote happiness, and nothing says happiness or relaxation, like a 'screened' in cobble stone wine cellar (sorry mosquitoes and gnats, no insects allowed).

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.”

Coming Home To Bathroom Improvements: Safety & Independence

BEFORE:

We were contacted by the spouse of an extremely active lady who recently had a stroke. He wanted to be sure that by the time she came home from rehab the bathrooms in the home were accessible for her independent use.

They had a walk in shower with swing in door entry. The shower did have a seat; however not large enough to safely use as true shower seat. No grab bars were present and they had a fixed shower head. Both toilets that our client would be using were standard height– no grab bars to assist in rising from the seat.

After:

We removed the walk-in shower, which had 3-4” step entry and installed a walk-in shower with 1-2” step entry. The shower has a bench seat and 2 18” grab bars installed to allow our client safe and independent entry and use. We also installed a hand held shower head.

We installed 2 22” inch toilets, replacing the clients standard height toilets. With one toilet we installed an 18” angled grab bar on the right side and an “U” shaped wall/floor mount grab bar on the left. For the other toilet we installed an 18” angled grab bar on the right side and an “L” shaped grab bar on the left. The extra grab bar holding surfaces/options for the left side provided our client the best option to utilize the strength she had regained (and continues to regain) to independently use the toilet facilities.

From the Client:

“Trent and team went out of their way to complete the project as quickly as possible. Excellent results at a fair price."
