Well-planned wood terrace

Large easily accessible wood terrace that makes it possible for a wheelchair user to easily spend time outdoors on a sloping lot

Description
The house is surrounded on three sides by a spacious terrace made of wood. The terrace can be accessed via the entrance door or through large glass doors from the living room. One of the doors has an automatic door opener. This door is wide enough for the bed to pass through it.

Authors comments
The user feels it is nice to have everything at the same level without any ramps. Going in and out is easy, without the terrace looking like it had to be modified for the purpose.

The user planned the garden together with a landscape architect.
