Idiosyncratic Accordion Gate

This unique accordion gate required that I match the existing fencing; make room for the swooping handrail; and accommodate opening and closing from inside and outside of the gate itself. I sank a fence post on one side and fabricated the gate from matching stock steel with a hinge in the middle – to allow the fence to open without forcing the person using it to step up or down the stairs. I masked and painted the existing fence and gate to match.
