My friend Bill Elliott sent me these photos from a recent trip to Canada.  The hold-open device is pretty crafty, but check out the non-slip surface on the ramp!

Don’t forget to send me some photos from YOUR summer vacation!  I’ll be sure to post some photos from mine!

    Great idea for a roof shingle, cheap and would work.

    FRUGAL VERY FRUGAL! BUT I DON’T THINK THE THRESHOLD IS GOING TO MEET ADA!

    Wow…love the hold open, even if it doesn’t meet code, it’s a great show of thought and skill. But I’m thinking that someone else thought up the roof shingle idea, as those black dashes are exposed tar. I’d hate to see how much of that gets on the bottoms of your shoes/onto wheelchair wheels on a hot day.
