              This is a ramp I found online that I sectioned and screwed down on the sliding door.
              It was cheap like $30

              All other outside doors (4) are paired french doors. The slider is more convenient so it's in the easiest entry spot.
              The company sells a bunch of these ramps which slide (laterally) into the next higher part so they can be pretty high) They are great for our purposes I'd say.
              I think I'll do this to the french doors in the breezeway. (which is where we keep our woodpile; it's a little difficult to pull the little red wagon over when it's loaded to spill!!)

                You would need a long ramp to go up that high. How about installing a false floor above the lanai to make it level with the house? I know a guy who did this with his sunken living room and it worked great. Without seeing the rest of the lanai, hard to tell if this would work for you.

                  i was thinking add pavers to raise floor up level. see lanai, may be easier just going through door to master.

                    I agree. I would raise the lanai floor, then just modify the screen door and add a ramp/planter combo on the grassy area.

                      I lowered the door by lowering the concrete. Wasn't as big a job as it may seem. The more time consuming part is adding to both interior and exterior walls to fill the gap that is created when you lower the door. I still wasn't happy with it because casters get caught in the track. Easy enough to wheelie over. But that's not always possible when you're carrying something, especially a drink.

                      Went with French doors. Wasn't initially a fan of French doors either. Because you have to be in the doorway to reach the handle but you can't close the door when you're in the doorway. There are a couple options to get around that problem. Install a door handle near the hinge side of the door. Install a cord around the door handle.

                      All problems solved. No ramp. No Track. Easy to close. Now I am a fan of French doors.

                        I built a simple 1/4 inch plywood ramp for a very similar situation to get out my patio door. Mine is 1" lower than yours except into the house is another 1/2 inch that is managed by a bit of thump thump over the guides that hold the screen, then another bit over the guides that direct the patio door. The other simple fix if your ramp would need too much length is to put a chair sized platform outside the door, then a longer plywood ramp along your long wall. It is all about how much $ you want to spend, and when. My rather slip-shod ramp (3 ft) has served for 3 years. It ain't broke, so...

                            I don't remember if I ordered from Discountramps.com or not, but here's a couple types I used.

                            For our patio door it's about a 2" drop and I just went with a shorty ramp, it's a kinda steep angle but works for me:

                            My best friend has a 4" dropoff from his patio to back deck and I bought this hard foam ramp to leave there, because it's not permanent and he can move it easily. It holds up better than I was worried, and isn't bad to roll on, a little mushier than a hard ramp but not bad:
