A home elevator can change your concept of design. With land being the greatest cost in construction, the more square footage you can place between the foundation and the roof, the larger home you can build. An elevator can make even a 5 story home accessible to anyone.
There are many reasons why elevators make sense. Caring for elders, preparing for the future (stairs may be OK when you are young, but who knows when mobility problems may occur), carrying groceries up the stairs, etc.
in 2000 we built a 3 story home and installed an elevator. Currently, we care for both of our 90+ year old mothers and, without the elevator, that would not be possible. More of our story in our website being developed.
At REICA Construction, Inc., we provide design consulting, sales, installation and service for our home elevators and other lift products. Installing a home elevator is simple if the elevator shaftway has been built properly. Our initial focus is on design. We work closely with your architect to make sure the elevator you plan for is practical.
