Reviewed by:
The Old House Web
Winding staircases can be beautiful in photos, but pose a problem for elderly or disabled homeowners. This home elevator offers access to the second floor, and is especially designed for retrofit applications.

African mahogany, birch or laminated wood give a warm feeling to the cab's interior. Standard features are a solid wood handrail, stainless steel panels, two 4" recessed lights with trim rings and an accordian-style gate.

  • The "Designer" elevator comes in various sizes.
  • Price range is $16,500 to $21,000, installed, with two stops on two floors (January 2006).
