HPG-1855-1 – The King Road
Before anything else, you should know that I wish with everything in me that there wasn’t a reason for this new house.
Four and a half years ago my wife and I were leading an ideal life. We were just starting to relax in our retirement and taking great joy from watching our four son’s families grow.
But a head-on collision changed everything. It was one of my oldest sons, one of my twins. For a while we didn’t believe he’d survive. And in a way, my Chris, my son I’d loved for 43 years, didn’t.
Chris is 48 now. He’s paralyzed on his left side and suffers from extensive brain damage. He requires total care, which his Mother and I give round the clock.
His medical condition is the reason for our new house. Our old home place was very secluded; which at one time we loved. But since Chris has frequent seizures, we need an ambulance to be able to find us fast. Also, we need to be closer to his doctors and physical therapist whom he sees three times a week.
The most imperative need for building, though, is that everything must be handicap accessible. I’m 70 and my wife, Betty, is 68 years old. So the idea of not having to fight his chair through doorways or squeeze down halls is quite appealing. And we’re looking forward to the handicap bathroom like kids look forward to Christmas!
I LOVE the large rooms in this home design and the layout is absolutely perfect for our needs with no wasted space…
While I continue to pray my child will be made whole again and we wouldn’t NEED this new house; it will be a great blessing and we are eager for the relief it will bring to our lives.
This is a great house for our family’s needs and we would definitely recommend House Plan Gallery home designs to anyone…
