Daddio has been helping build ramps for people in need for several years through a program in Tulsa, OK called Kirk Carpenters from Kirk of the Hills church. Now we are attending First United Methodist in Claremore, OK and had an opportunity to build a ramp in that community. Well, Daddio knew what to do, of course. Here is our first ramp project.
Steve and Jeff remove the current porch railing, so the ramp can be installed.
First porch platform frame installed.
Laurie, in the background with the shovel, put this form together with a very little help from me. That girl can swing a hammer and I want her to get credit, because I was her helper and couldn't take pictures while I was holding boards for her to hammer. I'm not sure I could even be called a helper, but I did get lots of pics while I was being useless.
Now the boys are setting the posts for the ramp.
Ramp frame being installed. And yes, this was another product of Laurie's, that she completed while I was getting in her way. But, I did help dig the hole, that the ramp has to sit down in, to get the proper slope. Or I should say, I attempted to dig a hole, then the guys came over and finished it. Seriously, I'm just the one taking the pics.
