Ramped Up Handicap Accesible

Had trouble getting large items in my house because the way my driveway was setup we always had to lift everything and some of my family is getting older and has trouble walking up stairs. Never having did any type of work like ramps before I designed this all in my head without paper when I was at the Home Depot. I had no idea I would be this close but as you can see I have a minimal amount of lumber left over it was the perfect amount and everything worked out really well.

There was an enormous amount of work on this that you don't see but this is the point I wanted it to be simple looking but sturdy enough to drive a car up on to the deck and it is. Everyone I know loves the deck now.

Keep in mind a lot of the landscaping and other things were not done until after everything was put away.

Well thought I would share hopefully I win I sure could use some new tools from ryobi would be like a dream answered. Thank you folks very much for any support I get!

  • Sure would be nice to see the support structure underneath.

    • The supporting structure is stairs already there along with 2x12's cut free hand with a circular saw using a straight edge and a pencil to mark where it fit there are 5 of them you could have 500+ lbs jumping on it and there is zero movement anywhere nice long deck screws were used. Believe it or not everything exceeded the properties of mating surface to surface which was odd, I basically guessed the depths of how far it would have to be dug in to mate and made cuts accordingly. There was a little overhang and I have since added a hand railing which has been dug in with a post hole digger and attached to the support of the ramp as well for that I used my Ryobi tools. I also just recently built a solar rack with my brushless ryobi drills and such having about 2kw of output max. Did not take video or pictures though while I was doing it just after it was done finished product only so dunno if it would fly as a project but maybe I should post it anyway why roof mount solar when you can build your own rack on the cheap and save yourself some cashola monthly on solar.
