The owners of this property had an old lift but it was rickety and then it fell off the tracks so they wisely decommissioned it. Then they had us remove it and build this lift so they can keep and use the cottage indefinitely.
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.
These cottagers have a sandy beach that was always cluttered with weeds and debris, made worse by a prevailing wind that piled up dead water weeds. Before they had their lift, keeping it clean so they and their young children could enjoy it was an all-weekend chore. Now it's done in an hour or so.
