    BJH - Nice ramp, blends nicely with the house.

    This is a pretty wicked example of a "Stramp" , a stair/ramp designed by Cornelia Oberlander and Arthur Erikson in Robson Square, Vancouver.

    Excellent for practicing wheeling down stairs, you can start with one step and slowly work your way up the ramp and build up to full flight of stairs.
