Lift 39: A Four-Person Lift that Connects a Cottage to the Waterfront

Model: 4-Person (750-pound capacity)
Track: 120 feet at 27°
Year: 2011


The owners of this cottage were losing their connection with the waterfront. It was a challenging lift to build because the track had to be high off the ground, right from the deck to to the dock. Furthermore, the upper deck was sagging so we had to build to where new deck would eventually be rather than to where the old ones had sagged.

At the lower end, we designed the station platform to connect the existing walkway and the lift. Both station gates are interlocked for added safety.

The wooden houing in the middle of the track protects the winch and electrical machinery.

The deck work was done by GR Construction.
