I’ll explain. As many of you know I use a disability vehicle (scooter.)
My one is called a Tramper and is made just outside Salisbury. The type is known for its ability to traverse over rough ground and through water up to 12” deep. The land rover of disability scooters.
Mine is housed in a shed that is insulated all round and carpeted, too!
The Tramper is 28” wide and the shed door 30.” There is a step to enter the shed and since I’ve had the scooter (3 years) I’ve had to force it up the step. This means it suddenly goes in and shoots forward. Scary at times.
Alan Bishop, a shed member, heard about my predicament and called to see me. He measured the sizes required and returned 50 minutes later with it completely made. It fitted the entrance perfectly.
He then said he’d take it home again and paint it. Not just any old paint either. He used brown Decking Stain that is anti-slip.
It is a pleasure to drive in and out now.
Please see the photos that the editor has used.
A BIG thank you to Alan. I have put a cash donation in the Shed box.
By the way, Alan used all his own materials.
Before covid, Arthur & Cliff Cumming & I used to enjoy a Sunday roast lunch together at Fawcett's Club or a local pub. Fawcett's have not started the lunches again. I'm sure us three will get back together again soon. Besides Diabetes type1 which I've had for 62 years and 21 years chronic coronary heart disease & for18 years a rare type of arthritis called Cheiroarthropathy. It's nerves growing in my joints, also in my muscles. No disfigurement but so, so painful. The use of my hands has deteriorated as has my hips, knees, back & shoulders. There is no treatment!
So, when people help me I'm VERY grateful. Quality of life is improved immensely.
Just read your post Terry glad it made life easier for you.
Little jobs like this are the way to help each other ,we can all do this in some way or other and who knows it may be us that needs help next time.
Enjoy the rain.
Super job Alan did for you. Not at all surprised that you're very pleased with it.
As an aside I'm also very pleased that you chose to tell us about it in the Shed's Forum - that's exactly what it's for.
Well done Terry for telling us about it and well done Alan for helping a fellow shed member.
