This ramp is a drawbridge, fully counterweighted and hinged at one end such that when opened reveals another ramp below it. The owner of this house uses a wheelchair and a ramp is necessary to move from the garage to the house.

However, an additional ramp to move from the garage to the basement would consume too much space on this urban lot. Two ramps in one footprint are made feasible with the bridging mechanics of hinge, counterweight, hydraulic pistons, and 1½ horsepower motor.
