    Unhappy funding for elevator

    hello, i am in Montana,and we are buidling a house, putting in a chain lift elevator by concord, but its so expensive(15.5k) and it will put us over our loan

    most programs locally that i have found are all based on income, and i(we/wife) make to much to qualify

    so i am looking for other alternatives to funding.

    thanks

    ideas?

    e-Bay , i bought a curved one for $300 , list price is $8,000. 1 1/2 years old. goes up 3 steps , curves on landing , the up to the top. bought another one for $100 , str8 run , for the basement. problem is finding one buy you or find a way to get it home. my buddy drives for N. American Van Lines. he picked it up in Chicago when he was up there. saturday i'm going to Albany to pick up the str8 one. the guy didn't even want any money. he just wanted someone who needed it to get it. he also giving me a manual chair , suit case ramp and bunch other stuff. his dad died and he said his dad would be happy that it went to someone who could use it. i told him he has to take $100 for flowers for his dads and moms graves. in the basement i can start doing some wood working. take care of my boiler when i need it. opens whole new world of access and things to do.
    oh well

    Unhappy Concord elevator

    I have a Concord lift that is supposed to be an outside one but I don't think it is since it has been out of order for about half of the time that I have had it. When it works it is fine but it's no fun being trapped on it. You might want to try another kind or get a great warranty from the company. Sorry to be so negative but that's my experience.
