    Are the following sentences similar?
    1.My father made the gate of our farm so narrow as not to admit any vehicles.
    2.My father made the gate of our farm narrow to an extent that it does not admit any vehicles.

    Both sentences mean the same thing. But they do sound a little awkward to me. I suggest this sentence, which sounds more natural:

    :tick: My father made the gate leading to our farm so narrow that vehicles can't enter.

    Or maybe "My father made the gate to our farm narrow enough to block any vehicles".
