The Boone Homes promise to buyers is that we build homes the right way – with integrity. But of course, when it comes to integrity, it’s not just about the homes.
Sometimes it’s about the people. With thirty years of experience building top-notch quality homes, the relationships between Boone Homes and its partners have grown deep. So deep, in fact, that when one of those partners needed help after a life-changing diagnosis, Boone Homes stepped in to fill their need without a second thought.
Ted of Better Kitchens and Baths, a long time Boone Homes partner, was recently diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease.
The disease attacks the nervous system, brain, and spinal cord. As it progresses, it begins to threaten mobility. There are more than 20,000 Americans diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease, also known as ALS. While science has made great strides in treating ALS, most of those diagnosed will display some symptoms.
In order to promote Ted’s mobility and well-being, a team of Boone Homes employees stepped in to build a ramp for him. The ramp will replace the steps that could become challenging to an ALS patient over time. Since we are talking about Boone Homes, the ramp is as attractive as any of our other projects, and of course, it’s made with the highest-quality materials.
In years to come, it could serve as a bridge to mobility for Ted. That might make it one of Boone Homes’s most important projects as well.
