The owners of this lift couldn’t get to their waterfront as much as they wanted too decided to build the lift to make it easy reconnect.
These cottage owners really needed this lift to utilize the whole cottage and the water, without the lift they were considering selling.
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.
With this island lift, we found an optimal route for the lift but while the top station was easy to locate and build, the lower end was tightly constrained and the lift would have to be close to the ground.
This PLC-controlled lift kept evolving as we were building it. It started out as a 160-foot run with a vertical rise of 100 feet. On the first day, the owner asked us if we could raise the top end by six feet to allow for back filling the upper station.
This four-station lift was the first of its kind for our company. It started as a three-station lift — the parking area, the main floor of the cottage, and the dock — but during construction it became obvious that another station to the main sun deck of the cottage was a good idea.
This lift runs approximately 200 feet from the edge of a backyard to a valley floor seven stories away. It provides the owners access to miles of cross country skiing while circumnavigating the treacherous forest trail that was their only direct route to the trails.
The owners needed a means of accessing the boathouse roof from the cottage, mainly to transport family and guests.
We built this for the Muskoka Building Company on a cottage construction site after their original contractor was unable to begin the installation.
The owner of this lift wanted to keep it as hidden as possible from the cottage and the lake. We found a discrete run but it was steep and extremely tight at the bottom end. Nevertheless, the car fits beautifully into the landing with minimal room to spare around it.
This one-person lift bypasses 25 beautiful but treacherous stone steps that were often wet and no longer safe.
This was the first lift we built with a really tight landing area.
