Bed and Breakfast Handicap Ramp in Jefferson, Texas
17 months we have been here now. When we put our lives into this bed and breakfast, we had so many plans. My idea when I first arrived was to make the Carriage House mine, my style, my comfort, my easiness and my hospitality. New Quilts, paint repairs, gardens, the right plates, magnificent food and presentation, the right wholesome staff. All of this is very important to me. It is a never ending thought how to make it better and more memorable to our guests.
As time went by in such a short period of time, I met so many neat and amazing people. This perfect house started to seem to me it needed a little updating. Updating didn’t and doesn’t include the house, property or staff. I saw that a variety of people that came and visited our home. The responses from their stays were overwhelmingly encouraging. BUT… I saw a need….
Our guests range in ages and needs to really enjoy and relax. There are knee surgeries and walkers and families bringing a loved one that needs that little extra something to help them, enjoy their stay. We have a one story home. People call me and ask questions about the property about the accessibility to maneuver around the house. I always said, YES, one story, 2 steps leading up to the wrap around porch…Easy …Easy…Easy….
Then some arrived and it wasn’t so easy. I had to make a change.
We have just added a beautiful ramp to our wrap around porch which is located on the main house which houses 2 original bedrooms, the parlor and the dining room. Everything at your fingertips without a stair.
What a difference it has made. For one of my first big renovations, I believe this was the best choice for the house and our guests.
We also have walk in showers with grips on the shower floors. We have also installed safety bars in the two rooms with the bath and shower combinations.
Safety is important to us and to th health of our guest. Pictures to come soon. My husband told me we could not paint the ramp yet because the wood has to cure???? Anyway, June or July I will be able to paint the porch and the ramp. Pictures will be posted.
