What are the basic requirements for installing a residential lift


Most home elevators require space for a shaft for the elevator to move up and down. Although there are models on the market that are free-standing and don’t require a shaft, identifying the most appropriate space is one of the key considerations.


A residential elevator will also require a space or a pit at the base as well as some extra clearance above. This space is required to ‘house’ the various lift mechanisms. Ideally, it is best to design a house or building with the lift in mind although in most cases it is possible to retrofit a home elevator. Residential lifts can be fitted internally and externally depending on the model chosen. Costs will reflect the model you choose as well as whether there are any structural modifications to the building required.

Levels & Door Openings

Depending on the primary purpose for installing a home lift, you may want to consider the number of levels as well as door opening features.
