Home modifications

We are in the process of making our first home modification for Brayden.

A wheelchair lift is going in the garage. We have about four steps from the garage in to the house. Brayden's wheelchair (especially with him in it) is hard to carry in and out of the house. With him catching the bus at 6:50 a.m. we need to get him in and out of the house with ease; and any other time for that matter.

The company came out yesterday to look at what we should have done.

We are going with something like this.

Not incredibly attractive but easy to use. We will make a few changes to make a platform and new stairs in the garage but pretty simple.

And it is EXPENSIVE! I tried not to make a face when the rep told us how much. I was a little taken back with the cost. However, it will make things much easier for us and Brayden.
We also talked about an elevator for the interior of our house but we are not at that point yet.
