In the past, the home elevator was considered a high-end luxury item afforded to only the select few. However, with smaller footprints, decreased machine room space and more flexible design options, residential elevators are quickly becoming a staple item in modern homes. And, as today’s baby boomers desire to age in place and live safely and comfortably in their own homes, their popularity will continue to increase.

Whether you’ve decided to build your dream home or remain in your present home, elevators allow you the freedom to access all levels of your home. Completely adaptable to any style of home, one can design their new lift system to blend effortlessly into their home’s décor.

This is a picture of a residential elevator.

Plan for the Future Today:
Another option is to prepare your home for the future. The homeowners of this custom built home desired an elevator for use in their “golden years”. Our design team incorporated the shaft to be used as a rock climbing wall in the interim as the owners are avid mountain climbers. Their elevator shaft is put to good use while they await their full functioning elevator!
