On a warm sunny day in September, the Potter staff and volunteers visited Edward’s home in Burien to build an access ramp. This ramp is one of many built in King County as a part of the Master Builders Association Rampathon program. We are honored to have been participating for more than a decade, with our volunteer crews planning and building ramps.
Ed is 95 years old, and uses a walker, and wheelchair to help him with mobility. The concrete steps, while not many, provide a challenge to safely get to and from the car.
Ten Potter staff and volunteers helped throughout the day. Here is the progress mid-way thru, the concrete stairs are demolished, and the footings and posts are in!
The end result with completed ramp and handrails. The slope provides safe access in and out of the home for Edward, he is trying it out with his walker!
We are thankful to Masterbuilders who make this program possible, Dunn Lumber and Green Latrine for donating the supplies necessary, and Husky Deli for helping keep our appetites at bay!
