Modified garage

Modified garage for a person who drives a minivan equipped with a ramp on the side

Description
The garage has a door that operates by remote control (see associated tip) and the garage also has a door on the side. Since the existing garage was too small for the car it was modified as follows: A hole was made in the wall to accommodate the front end of the car. The side door of the garage (for people) was moved to the level of the car ramp. The side door is equipped with an automatic door opener.

Authors comments
Since the car ramp is at the same level as the garage side door, no turning radius is needed inside the garage, which means that the user does not need an extra wide garage.
