This was a Memorial Day weekend project for my bother and I at our Mom's house to help her get around better.The step from the kitchen is about 8" and there originally was a small ramp - about 3' long - coming straight out, but she needed something safer.Platform is 4'x6'. Perimeter boards are 2x8's with plywood as the flooring.Anti-slip matting is added to that.When finished it is nearly exactly level with the kitchen floor.We improved the doorway by removing the metal threshold as trip hazard
