    Costs go beyond the elevator and remodeling the side of house. Other costs may include reinforcing the foundation and roof and upgrading the electricity service. You're talking $50K minimum and more likely $100K. You'd pay less to move to a single story house and also be much happier. Then there's reliability. Elevators are notorious for failing. Just hope you're on the ground floor. But what if you're on the second floor during failure? Or worse, what if you're inside? A person in a wheelchair would require a pretty good service contract for an elevator. The elevator companies often sell elevators at cost just to get the service contract, which is their bread and butter. Service contracts are necessary and expensive.
