20 May Safety In The Seaquist House
After purchasing the house in January of 2015, there were many safety issues to take into consideration: the railings on the balconies on the second and third floor are not built high enough for building code safety, so we have not been able to allow the public access to those areas. Portions of the first floor porch need some type of railing, particularly on the north side as there are two areas with high drop-offs. There are several sets of steps from the first floor porch to the yard, few of which have hand rails. We are currently working on getting the other hand rails installed. There are three sets of stairs that go into the basement, but we only use one of those and it has a hand rail. Thank goodness for Archie Enochs, one of our volunteers who has taken the time and effort to build these handrails and install them with free labor!
