Residential Elevators »
AIP Resolution No. 4: I will plan for future years.
Most multi-story homes don't have, or need, elevators, but if your master bedroom is upstairs and you develop a mobility issue, an elevator can be a resource. It's not inexpensive to add one, but neither is relocating to assisted living.
If you're building a custom multi-level home you intend to live in indefinitely, ask your architect to plan space for an elevator so that it will be easier to add later if you need one.
