This is one of our longest lifts at 260 feet with the added challenges of a 150-foot vertical rise and a top station that sits 12 feet off the ground.
We needed a minor variance to build this lift before the cottage was built, so it could act as a workhorse, ferrying supplies to the building site. This is a smart strategy that for some reason isn’t used very often.
From the owner: “Access to our cottage on Lake Huron is down a hill of almost 100 cedar steps. Everything that we bring to the cottage or take away has to be lugged up and down the hill. My husband I had always thought we would wait until our senior years to put in a lift but the fact was that it made more sense to do it now and use it for the next 30-plus years.
