            It would make much more sense to eliminate the need for a wheelchair inside the tiny home (or motorhome for that matter) Leaving enough space to actually maneuver a wheelchair kind of defeats the purpose and efficiency of the tiny homes. It would be relatively easy to design either a powered or manual lift system which would function kinda like a gantry crane. Just leave your chair at the door.
