- I have an unfinished basement (concrete floor) and there is a transition to a stair landing which is about 1.5 inches high. The inspector once mentioned that this won’t fly and that I should build a ramp or gradual transition. We’ve lived in the house for over a year and never had an issue tripping on it because it’s so obvious. Rather than a ramp, could I put a 2x4 there and paint it yellow as a “caution” warning type reminder for people who are not used to the step?

- I have a garage door to the outside which has a step of 7.5 to over 8 inches from the garage floor to the top of the door transition (because the garage floor is sloped). Do I need to build a step here? 3’ x 3’ perhaps? On the outside there is a 1" gap between the pavers and the door transition.
I’ve attached a couple pics to help with my question. Your help is much appreciated as I’d like to go for final building inspection early next week. I have final electrical and plumbing already. This was an extensive expansion/reno/new roof type build.
