Description
A two-car garage adjoining the house. The user drives a Chrysler mininvan with ramp on the side. The garage is long enough so that the user has room to pass in front of the car when driving the wheelchair into the house. The garage is also wide enough for the car ramp. The garage also has room for storing e.g., her electric moped. A cord with a small weight on it hangs from the garage ceiling (a marker to show where to stop). This marker helps the user to park in just the right place. When the weight rests on the windshield she knows that she is in the right place (see photo 2).
