Project Home

August 21, 2012 – October 27, 2012 all-day

Project Home

It is hard to believe it has been four months since Danny’s accident on April 14,th 2012. So much has happened over four months and the progress Danny has made has been nothing short of amazing[see video]. While Danny has been away we have analyzed the optimal living situation for Danny and his family and determined that a home renovation to their existing home is the most economical and practical path.

Walking through Danny’s  home it is clear that much work is needed to make their home functionable, accessible and safe for Danny and his family to live in. Jeff Margaretten with Margaretten Architectural got to work and designed a 670sf expansion of their home. Key features include:

  • Wheel chair accessible exits and entry points at the front of the house, side entry and garage
  • Expanded master suite to accommodate a roll-in shower and dressing area for Danny
  • Widening interior doorways to be wheel chair accessible
  • Renovating the kitchen for wheel chair accessibility and access for Danny for food and beverages
  • Home office expansion so Danny and April can work from home efficiently and productively
  • Wheel chair accessible laundry room
  • Covered Porch as an accessible outdoor space for Danny and his family
  • New landscape and paver-scape design for Danny to easily access his front and back yards

We are relying on donated materials and labor for a majority of the project and are seeking out individuals and companies that would like to participate in the home renovation. If you are interested in volunteering or supplying materials please CONTACT US @
