To say that the last six years has been a challenge for Army Ranger Sergeant First Class Cory Remsburg would be an understatement. Since being severely injured in Afghanistan in 2009, the retired Army Vet has undergone extensive surgeries, therapy and to gain mastery over several daily tasks. Unfortunately, his home environment was not set up in a way to support Cory’s new lifestyle.
This is where the Peak One Builders team has stepped up to provide some knowledge and support to make common home living easier for Sergeant Remsburg and his family. Since August of 2014, several Phoenix-based businesses have chipped in to support a full home renovation project for Cory Remsburg – allowing one of our local hero’s is to live inside a home enhanced with several improvements that will permit him the freedom to live and move around in a comfortable environment.
This very important Phoenix home renovation project is nearing completion. In fact, the home of Army Ranger Sergeant First Class Remsburg will be completed in mid-March. Thanks to a continued partnership between Peak One Builders & Restoration and Jared Allen’s Home for Wounded Warriors foundation; the fourth one completed for Wounded Warriors – Sergeant Remsburg will be able to complete many daily tasks that so many of us can often take for granted.
The improvements the Peak One Builders team has made to Cory’s home will permit him and his family to build and enjoy many wonderful memories together moving forward. The sacrifice Cory has given to protect the freedoms and liberties that we enjoy in the Phoenix Valley and across the United States should always be recognized and rewarded. It has been a great experience and honor to complete this project on behalf of JAH4WW and the Remsburg family.
When the Peak One Builders team began the home renovation project in August of 2014; the house was approximately 1,800 square feet but needed to be completely “gutted” to ensure it was 100% handicapped accessible and supported Cory’s specific needs. Some of the projects undertaken included making sure all doors is widened, cabinets & counter tops lowered, bigger toe kicks on cabinets and roll-in showers for wheelchair access to name a few.
But this wasn’t good enough for the Peak One Builders team – many of whom are retired veterans themselves. In fact, thanks to the support of several contractors and local companies, we were able to add a few extra perks including a beautiful back yard with pool, spa, and outdoor kitchen. We also added a 500 square foot guest house quarters.
This project was made possible because of Jared Allen’s Homes for Wounded Warriors Foundation. JAH4WW is a non-profit organization created for the sole purpose of raising money to build or modify the homes of America’s injured Military Veterans so that they are handicap accessible and comfortable. Jared Allen of the Chicago Bears formed the organization in 2009 after he returned home from his USO Tour to U.S. Military Bases in the Middle East.
“Working on Cory’s home wasn’t a challenge – it was an honor. And we thank him and his family for their sacrifice in defending our freedom.”
