Small ramp

This ramp was built to enable a war hero, navy veteran, age 95, be able to walk in and out of his own front door.

He was unable to get one of his legs over this particular step without tripping, as it had no handrail. Since he had another step to go up at the door, which he could easily navigate, he wanted this to be a temporary ramp, able to be removed if the HOA didn’t like it.

Well, long story short, I built it, the HOA thought it was a great idea and allowed it, so he is now able to go in and out without issues.
