nice job . I don’t climb stairs unless it is absolutely necessary . I had to build a ramp for the front door and back door

Don’t forget to add sand to the paint. It’ll give you Mitch better grip when wet.

It’s a temporary build, only for a couple of weeks. I didn’t get a picture, but have put grip tape on it to give some grip when wet.

It takes lots of room for a ramp that meets code,your suppose to have a foot in length for every inch in rise,so as an example, a 30" rise means the ramp should be 30 feet long. It can be very difficult to find that much room, sometimes you have to have a landing or two and switch backs.
This looks solid enough for tempory use.

Thankfully it’s no longer needed and will be turned into planters soon. He’s fully recovered, but it served its purpose well.
