Without a lift getting to the water involved a scary 15 minute drive in a 4 x 4 vehicle on a steep, rough track. With the lift it will be less that 5 minutes.
These owners had considered lifts and driveways several times and final decided the time was right to go for the lift.
There was no way for owners to use this property conveniently without a lift. Lovegrove Construction invited us to design a solution. It turned out there was only one spot at the top where we could place the lift and that, fortunately, worked for building the dock and the cottage.
Prior to the installation of this lift the owners had never been to their lakefront. Now, a trip between the water and the cottage, about 170 feet of vertical rise, takes four peaceful minutes and offers a spectacular view of the forest, cliff, and lake.
