Accessible patio

Raising the entire patio to the same level as the house avoids ramps directly in front of the entry door.

Description
The townhouse entry is through an enclosed patio. The patio is bordered by the house, a storage room and one wall. Originally a stairway led to both the entrance and the storage room. The entire patio was raised to the same level as the house and storage room. A wooden ramp was built to get from the gate to the patio.

Authors comments
The patio works well and is frequently used. The ramp may become somewhat slippery in winter.
