Lift 12: A Roof-Top Solution

Model: 4-Person
Track: 60' at 40°
Year: 2007

The owners needed a means of accessing the boathouse roof from the cottage, mainly to transport family and guests. 

There were challenges. By extending the catwalk leading from the staircase to the boathouse roof we were able to save a tree just above the lower station. That extension also meant that people waiting for the lift could stand without blocking the pathway for others wanting to walk past. Although the track is fairly high off the ground, we were able to set the track to minimize its length and visual impact while ensuring that the car would be nicely positioned in both stations.
