inuwa -- I wish that I could give you a simple answer here, but there are several things that would impact the cost. The elevator in the photo is from www.pneumaticelevator.com. I would suggest starting with a call to them as the cost of the elevator itself will depend on how many floors you need it to stop on, overall height, and other options. Labor costs vary wildly from one part of the country to another so you'll need to speak with a contractor in your area to get costs on installing it. The folks at www.pneumaticelevator.com may be able to give you some idea of the costs associated with installing this specific type of elevator. Best of luck to you! While you are in the process of building the house is definitely the best time to get this going.

You'll need to contact the folks at www.pneumaticelevator.com to get the specifics from them.

Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to Home Elevators: A Rising Trend
The pneumatic elevator is the third type and the most recent innovation. This giant polycarbonate tube with a separate tube inside for the cab works with air pressure, pretty much like those deposit tubes at the bank drive-through (although, thank goodness, you don't whiz through quite that fast). The 37-inch-diameter tube can be installed without any need to build a shaft or a machine room, so if you need an elevator in an existing home, this may be the one for you. It needs no machine room, as the pump box that runs the elevator is only 11 inches tall and the same diameter as the tube.Although you don't have to build a shaft, so this is a pretty easy thing to install, you do need to have wide enough doorways to get the tube into your house. It requires a 39-inch-wide opening to go through, and most doorways are about 36 inches or less.See a wealth of technical data about pneumatic elevators here

Pneumatic Elevator Tube

These pneumatic elevators are the easiest type to install in an existing home. No need for a pit below or space above it for mechanicals. Imagine how nice this would be when lugging groceries upstairs from the garage or hauling laundry down to the basement. Also a great idea for someone with mobility issues.
