Deck and Ramp Project
Project by Chaney Roko

After adopting a five-year-old with complex medical needs, friends of the family were kind enough to build a deck and ramp onto Chaney Roko's home, making it fully accessible for the first time. 

Here is a picture of the rear of the house before the deck and ramp was built.  As you can see, it features several steep stairs into a narrow back door.

Prior to the deck and ramp, getting people in wheelchairs into the house was quite a challenge.  This picture shows the collapsible ramp that was used to transfer directly into a wheelchair van.

New stairs, a small deck, and a new wider door were added to the backside of the house.

Along the side of the house is a large deck with a full ramp.  The next two photos show the deck area and new ramp.
