Garage adapted to minivan

In order to avoid a slope for the car ramp, the level of the ground at the side of the garage was raised to the same level as the floor of the car – suitable for persons with compromised arm function

Description
The garage is a separate open building without doors and has room for 2 cars. The user drives a minivan with a ramp on the side. The garage has an opening in the side that fits the car's ramp. A paved path leads from the house to this side door. The path is higher than the garage, at the same level as the car floor, which eliminates the slope of the ramp.

Authors comments
The user needs room to pick up speed in order to handle a slope, but there was no room so she thought of the solution with the raised path, which allows her to easily roll into the car.
