Build It Yourself: Wheelchair Ramp

handicap wood ramp Build It Yourself: Wheelchair Ramp
After being laid up this week recovering from knee surgery following an ACL reconstruction, I realize how grateful I am for my normal mobility. I’ve got two flights of stairs to climb before reaching the door of our New York apartment. I never thought it was that bad until now. My condition is only temporary and even though it does suck, I know that I’ll be back on my feet in a few weeks. For those who are confined to a wheelchair or have other mobility issues an access ramp is an absolute necessity.
Here are a few resources for building and installing a wheelchair ramp.
