    Hi Beerod-that's a great loft! I like the exposed brick.

    Beerod, that lift has been in my brain for many years. Alas, I am not an engineer and it has never been more than a fuzzy image. It has always seemed ridiculous to me that to access more than one floor in a home you must pay for the complexities of a conventional elevator (and then worry about the dreaded power outage).
    I can imagine your lift tricked out with some metal art, etc.
    Who designed and built it for you?

    Cool place!

    I wonder about heating, wall and attic insullation, etc. I imagine there isn't any.

    In regards to the lift, I wonder if the same principles could be incorporated into an inclined platform stair lift?

    Hi Brod, could we see a close up of the wheels and the way that they are attached to the track they go up and down on, please? It looks like the track is an I-beam in the video.
    If we ever have a CareCure Cribs contest I am nominating your house as the winner.

    hey skippo.. i'll take a pic and post sometime for you, and number 1.. i designed it.. i've always been a bit of a tinkerer but this was a bit too big for me to build solo so had a local steel fabrication firm make up the components and a handy group of strong friends help with the installation. i love it.. it's been running for around 18 months now and i still appreciate it every day. well worth all of the head scratching.
