In Response To: wheelchair ramp (Jim B)

Jim, The formula for this kind of ramp is 1" of raise for every 12" of run.You only have 85" so we cant do that. I think that going from 6" to nothing in 85" shouldnt be that steep.You did say the starting point for the ramp is 6" off the ground right??I would use 2x6 pt for the framing and 5/4 deck boards for the ramp surface. And screw it dont nail it.Hope this helped a little.
