This custom built home in the hills of San Rafael happened to have the perfect setting for an indoor elevator. Our clients needed to make their home accessible for their elderly family members and friends with disabilities. A stairlift was out of the question as their aim was to provide full access for a wheelchair bound friend. At first glance our technician noticed that in the corner of their home, their first and second floors both had identical closets, one right over the other- a perfect space for the elevator to be housed! Construction began shortly thereafter and several weeks later they are able to host friends and family on both levels of their home with no difficulty.
Salinas, CA. Overhead Patient Lift Installation that required customizing the door opening and framing. This job looks simple but due to the multiple ceiling heights it required very careful planning. Overhead patient lift are becoming more and more popular, this system is completely automatic. Our client will be able to get out of bed and travel over to a stretch table continuing onto an automatic turn table that can turn to go over the toilet or into the shower.

This next year Gamburd, Inc. invites you to join us on our journey to build the ultimate, luxury, fully accessible, custom home.
We met the Lobato family in 2013 and installed 2 simple ramps to allow their daughter Elizabeth to exit the home from the front and side of the house in her power wheelchair. Once the ramps were complete, Elizabeth's dad Terry entertained the idea of making the bathroom accessible so that Elizabeth can shower on her own.
This year Gamburd Inc. broke its own record by installing the world’s longest stairlift for Mary. To put 102 feet into perspective consider this: On average a Bruno handmade custom stairlift has 4 rail sections and is 20 feet long. People often think that stairlifts are mounted to walls, but they are actually mounted to the stairs with stands. On average about ten stands are used. Mary’s outdoor stairlift used 20 rail sections and 57 stands. The rail for the lift used over a ton of steel. Even with this, Gamburd Inc. installed the entire lift in one day. Mary was instructed how to use her stairlift and taking rides before the sun set. Below is an interview with Mary. We thought you’d like to hear her story in her own words.
We were hired to construct a new staircase and install a stairlift once it was completed. The staircase had to be built around existing slopes which would prevent for a perfectly straight rise and tread. Once the staircase was built we made custom brackets for the stairlift.
