Can they not build a platform in the finished area to allow for the proper entry and exit with the door hung that way it is now?

There is a stairway right there, making a landing for the garage door seem impossible, but .... If the landing was extending to the base of the stairs, it could serve both the door and the stairs and become a design feature.

Another way is to put the door at the home floor level, maybe bring the doorway into the room three feet but farther from the stairs, then two steps up to the garage. But a big landing would be relatively easy.

As long as the garage floor is not higher than the interior floor why not cut out the sill and lower the bottom of the door. Eliminate the extra step.

More work and expense than it's worth. Besides, that bottom step is pretty much the whole problem. It's a short sighted design and a tripping hazard.

The garage floor is at the same level as the bottom of the door. The existing step is on a landing allready. Basement steps, landing, step down into hallway from where I took the picture. By the time you redesign everything and replace the tile you could pay for a new door and install three times over.

Yeah, but ... That step is too narrow and too slippery. So they could swing the door into the garage but the step needs work too, IMO.
