    Terrace

    Hey guys!

    I bought myself a house a few days ago. It has a terrace and a garden. Now I think about solutions how to overcome the door frames towards my terrace ( I hope you know what I mean , sorry for my english). Do you guys have some kind of mini ramps in front of the frames or how did you fixed this problem? It would be great if someone can post a picture of yours.

    Thank you very much and i hope I found the right words

    I think I understand. There are mini ramps you can buy for doorway thresholds, they are expensive for what they do. If you can't wheelie hop it you probably can find small pieces of scrap wood to build up to the threshold.
    I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

      How many inches (or cm.) of a threshold rise (lip or step) are we talking about here??

          Ideally you should have a 50 cm. long ramp for this height threshold, but you may be able to get away with one that is a little shorter.

          Here are some examples:
