Ramp to patio

Simple adaptation for a person who drives a wheelchair - makes it possible to move with assistance to and from a patio

Description
Three steps lead from a patio built on the garage into the upper floor of the house. The entrance was adapted so the user can get in and out with assistance:
- The stairs were moved outward from the house to make room for a platform in front of the front door
- two wooden planks separated by the wheelchair’s wheel distance were nailed to the stairs.

Authors comments
Since the user has assistance and does not use the patio so often (the house has another patio that is more accessible) she doesn’t mind going in and out with assistance.
