Elevator in two-storey home

- a solution to make a two-storey home wheelchair accessible

Description
The elevator leads from the utility room entrance up to the first floor. The user drives outside with an electric wheelchair, indoors with a manual. He switches wheelchairs in the utility room entrance where he stores his electric wheelchair.

Authors comments
The municipality offered only a ramp structure outdoors and a small portable box (‘breadbox’) outdoors for storing the electric chair. Because of the difficulties moving from the house to the ‘bread box’ and moving on the ramp in winter, the user negotiated with the municipality to receive the money that the ‘bread box’ would have cost and applied it to purchase the elevator.
