Lift 18: A Cargo Lift With a Discrete Profile

Model: Cargo-Only Island Lift
Track: 60' at 40°
Year: 2008

The owners of this new island cottage needed a way to get luggage and supplies from the lake to the house. This lift carries up to 400 pounds directly from the dock to a porch that's accessed from the kitchen.

We designed the lift for minimum visual impact from both the house and the water. The track is narrower than our normal light track, so it fit on a stone wall without getting in the way of the cottage's picture windows. We also minimized changes required to the deck.
