Charlie has been building a ramp up to our front door for our friend who needs to enter the house in his wheelchair.
What started out as a fairly straightforward project ended up looking like a drawbridge over a castle moat.
When the front door was moved to the center of the front façade and a new porch put on, the excavating called for a major swale running around the perimeter to keep the water out of the basement. Said swale has been doing a great job.
The ramp starts out in the yard, crosses the swale, and meets up with a platform on the porch.
When in use we plan to cover it with walk-off mats.
In the mean time, during the next heavy rain I wouldn’t be surprised to see 7 swans a swimmin’.
How are the 12 days of Christmas going for you?
