The good news is Irma is now gone and Pelican Sound was very lucky to…
These are exciting times as after years of searching for a solution, there is an elevator that will work for second floor carriage homes! I have done the research and hope that this is helpful for you!
Please note to them that I have sent you along – this process took time to figure out and Joe will know what we personally discussed!
Elevator Company – Stiltz, The Home Lift Company
Sales Contact – Joe White
Telephone Number – 321-695-3425
Email – firstname.lastname@example.org
Elevator Type – Duo Thru Car
Elevator Cost – $22,495 (note if you have doctors note you would not pay sales tax)
Additional Costs – Electrical wiring, permits, build landing on second floor, and open wall on 2nd floor for entrance (Stiltz could do the entire project and their estimate is $29,995.00)
Met with Steve Fontz who is the head of permitting for the Village of Estero and he noted that this elevator would pass building code for the Village and Fire Department.
Overall plan summary:
- Reverse swing the garage door so the door opens into the garage versus the foyer
- Would enter from the garage directly into the elevator
- Would exit the lift from the opposite side (enter on one side and exit the other)
- Build a landing area on the 2nd floor (approximately 42” wide)
- Build a half wall or railing to protect from open stairway below
- Convert window opening in back bedroom that opens to stairway to either a French door or door and window (I think the French door provides more flexibility)
- Finalize flooring on landing area
- Note that outside window on the front of building stays in place
- Would recommend leaving the elevator in the “up” position so that you can enter and exit from the garage without having to walk thru elevator
Hope that everyone finds this helpful and so happy that a solution for an elevator has been found!
