Size of Contemporary Home Lift


Finding the home lift may be important to do. The base flood elevation (BFE) for your home is determined by your community. Understanding the following information involved in adding an lift can help you decide if this feature is the right addition for your home and family.

Surprisingly, the shaft for a home lift takes up little more space than a walk-in closet and can be installed as a retrofit or in a newly-constructed home. If you have a large house, you can choose a home lift as a second set of stairs.

Usually, the lift shaft is placed in a central location that is accessible to both bedrooms and living areas. Already existing closets are convenient starting places for installing a new home lift.

Home lift Design

lifts operate from a hydraulic lift system or a cable-and-pulley and electric motor system. All of the mechanics are contained within the lift shaft, reducing the needed space to essentially the size of a walk-in closet on both or all floors that the lift services.

The interior of the lift cab can be designed to match the interior of the home, including flooring and trim details. Very often, the lift doors can be designed so that they blend into the wall, making them indistinguishable from the rest of the home's interior.

lifts in New Homes

It is cheaper to add an lift in new homes than an existing structure. Plan to spend between $21,000 and $25,000 for a basic, no-frills, two-stop lift when adding it to your new home, suggests a 2013 article in the "Los Angeles Times." A basic three-stop lift costs slightly more, with an average price between $28,000 and $30,000. A 2014 article in "San Antonio Express-News" estimates the cost of a simple two-story lift in new construction starting at $20,000, with each additional stop or floor adding $1,500 to $2,000 to the base price.

lift Additions

Adding an lift to your existing home can easily cost twice as much as adding an lift during construction, according to the "Los Angeles Times." You may cost from $25,000 to $125,000 to build a home lift which relies on the size and weight limits of the lift and on how much your home needs to be modified to accept the lift. On average, a two-stop lift in an existing home should cost between $42,000 and $50,000, while a three-stop unit costs $56,000 to $60,000.

Pneumatic lift Prices

Pneumatic lifts may offer easier, faster installation, especially in existing homes. To install these lifts, contractors simply need to cut a round hole in each floor to accommodate the cab. There is no need to excavate or add hatches or separate machine rooms. A 2012 article in "Remodeling Magazine" estimates the cost of a vacuum lift at $55,000 to $75,000 based on size and features.
