Been in lost/fone purdah.
Brandon is measuring for my first ramp here. It should facilitate coming out of the garage and 5" down into the patio, and back up.
From that I can ferry things I should not be lifting, and sit to tend pots. When he works the bugs out using up scrap wood, he'll build another out the front door.
Both of these doorways have interim step platforms I created to reduce the 7" steps to 4", but it's time to ramp. These step platforms consist of decorative block laid in a pattern, under a doormat, pulled 1.5" away from the siding to provide space for a drip hose or outdoor extension cord. In all these situations, the ramp will butt up to these block platforms, not cover them.
When THOSE bugs are worked out, the third ramp can be planned, going out the back door and along the front gate towards the woodstove garden anchoring one end of the patio. That one has some complicated angles.
