Carpenters donate time and work to make Sheffield man’s life easier

(Hannah Shirley) Trevor Cobb wheels down his home’s newly-stained ramp.

ASHLEY FALLS — Like any new homeowner, Trevor Cobb had a vision for his house on Ashley Falls Road when he bought it three years ago.

But when a dirt biking accident last February paralyzed him from the chest down, renovations on his house came to a halt.

Following the accident, a ramp to the entrance was hastily built to the house’s entrance. However, other than that, the house remained largely inaccessible for Cobb, who uses a wheelchair, said Shimi Rotches, Cobb’s friend.

“When he came back, he came back to a house that was not handicap accessible, was not done, and was just a mess,” said Rotches, who owns Rotches Construction in Great Barrington.
