This is another construction project, done with my father-in-law (that’s the guy who looks like Santa) in about a day and a half. Made for a mom of a friend of a friend who needed a ramp before she could come home. Platform plus 24’ ramp, cost about $550 in materials.

Got some good use out of that jackrabbit kit I bought from someone here. Between that and my leather tool belt, I felt like Norm himself. Should have worn flannel.

Looks super sturdy and the pitch is nice and do able for a chair. I’m sure it is appreciated.

Thanks for the kind words.
Unfortunately the woman we built this for died about a week after it was completed (about a year and a half ago). I believe she came home once in that time so the ramp was possibly used by her on that occasion.

Oh, my apologies. It showed up in the projects on the main page so I assumed it was a recent post…
