CONCORD, N.H. — The father of a man injured in the Boston marathon bombings is getting some help making his Concord, N.H., home more welcoming for his son.

Jeffrey Bauman tells WMUR-TV that Cobb Hill Construction approached him about renovating his home to make it wheelchair accessible. Bauman’s son, also named Jeffrey, lost both legs in the bombings, and his father says he hasn’t seen him as often as he’d like because it’s not easy to get around the house.

Cobb Hill is donating time and materials to expand the home to include a wheelchair ramp, a larger bathroom, a new kitchen and a first-floor bedroom. The Immaculate Heart of Mary Church in Concord is collecting cash donations, and the builders are asking for donations of interior doors, siding and other materials.
