Adapted summer home
Ramp and outdoor kitchen were built to make the summer home wheelchair accessible.
One-storey house with 2 bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom and extra toilet. To make the house accessible ramps were installed on the front (see photos 1 and 2) and back of the veranda. An adapted outdoor kitchen was installed on the veranda. The indoor kitchen was not adapted. The ramp to the entrance door goes along the wall and leads to a platform in front of the entrance door.
