Part of the plans of the extension was a ramp off the deck. Although we have two sets of broad steps a ramp just makes moving furniture etc so much easier. Also gives access to our elderly neighbours.
I decided to make it about 5 meters long and 1 meter wide with a support saddle at the low end, one near the top where it changed width to go around a rock gabion and then supported at the deck as well. After welding the saddles and concreting them in I laid three 150mm C sections down and fixed them. On top of this I screwed down some left over futurewood decking to match the deck. When building the saddles I had made provision for uprights for a hand rail. These are bolted in and the bannister bolted to these. This is so I can easily remove the whole thing for painting in sections or if I need to move larger objects up the ramp.
