The new owners of this property needed the lift to access their floating boathouse, the existing stairs and platform were too tricky and too hard on their knees.


The floor of the car is level with the rear deck. Stu Charity Construction will connect the deck to the lift with a platform. The lift is off to one side and not in front of the cottage. When finished, it will be hidden and handy.


A close up view of the car at rest in the future upper station. The lift machinery, including the winch nd panel, is located in the housing at the top. The new deck will hide the lower portion of the motor house cover.


Looking down the track to the floating dock. The lift is designed so the car gate car travel up and donw in it’s fully opened, fully into the hill position without touching anything.


The lake level goes up and down by nearly 6’ so Stu had us set the car floor just above the high water mark. His crew will build a new lower platform with a ramp to the dock, incorporating our button box post into that landing. In the winter the lower legs are high and dry but in summer they will be under water. We made them from a larger size of angle iron to give them added longevity.
