Next Level Imagination

Nestled in the North Georgia mountains and overlooking the pristine shores of Lake Burton, there is a beautiful new home with an interior like no other.  From the back deck you will see some of the most breathtaking scenery found anywhere but the real gem is found inside. We truly are only limited by the imagination, and Steve Jones Construction certainly tested that limit.

Steve contacted Genesis Elevator Company near the beginning of his project to let us know about his plans for an elevator in this new home.  The plan was to access all three floors of the home which was no problem.  it wasn’t until discussions ensued as to the interiors that we realized things were about to get different.  A piece of the outdoor was about to come indoors and with it he lined the walls of the elevator.  The picture may not illustrate it well, but if you look closely you will see that the walls of the elevator are lined with tree bark.

After installing well over 1000 home elevators, there are times when we begin to think we have seen it all.  It is projects like this that remind me that the next unseen cool look is always around the next corner.  In this case, maybe we should say “is always at the next floor”.  Thanks Steve, this project was fun and we look forward to doing it again.


Which Home Elevator is Right for You?

More and more homeowners are recognizing the benefits of installing elevators in their homes. An elevator can improve mobility and make all of the rooms in a home accessible to a person who has trouble using the stairs or who gets around in a wheelchair. An elevator can also be helpful for everyday tasks, such as carrying laundry to and from the basement or transporting groceries to the kitchen. In addition, an elevator can increase a home’s value.

If you are considering installing an elevator in your home, you have many options. Traditional elevators are hydraulic or cable-driven models similar to commercial elevators. Contemporary pneumatic, or vacuum, elevators use changes in air pressure to move the cab up and down. Each has its advantages.

A traditional cable-driven or hydraulic elevator is generally larger and has a greater weight capacity than a pneumatic model. Traditional elevators are usually able to transport wheelchairs. A traditional elevator can often be tucked away in an inconspicuous location behind a door.

Contemporary vacuum elevators tend to be smaller than traditional lifts. Some pneumatic elevators can transport a wheelchair, while others are too small. The weight capacities tend to be smaller than those of traditional elevators. Unlike cable-driven and hydraulic elevators, vacuum elevators are attached to a balcony or travel through a hole in the floor. While this eliminates the need for a pit and machine room, it means that the elevator will be out in the open, clearly visible to anyone who visits the house. Many homeowners like this aspect of their design, as well as the clear panels that offer a panoramic view of a home’s interior.

The type of elevator you choose will depend to a large extent on the design of your home. A traditional elevator will be more appropriate for an older home, while a contemporary pneumatic elevator will be more appropriate for a modern house. The choice will also depend on the amount of space you have available, as well as your personal preference.
