Why am I featuring a picture of a residential elevator shaft

I came across this elevator shaft in a home under construction in the Lost Mountain subdivision in Marietta, GA. The home is crammed with luxurious details and I can’t wait to see the elevator installed at the end of this month.

I promise that I’ll tell you all about it when I see it for myself.

Update: Here’s the link to the elevator after installation.

Residential elevators are a perfect solution for seniors and disabled persons. They offer accessibility in a multi-story home and offer far greater access and home plan options for the handicapped and seniors alike.

Developer/Builder Charles Meng of Charles Meng Properties, Inc. has built an exquisite home on an exclusive property on historic Lost Mountain with “a view of Alabama on a clear day”…and we’re 50-60 miles from the Alabama border. I’m not certain about Mr. Meng’s geographical claim, but I’ve taken in the view many times in the past couple of years from where the house now sits and it does not disappoint.

ThyssenKrupp – The Lev Residential Elevator

Mr. Meng has mentioned to me that he is having a ThyssennKrupp elevator installed. The elevator model type to be installed is The Lev, in my best estimation, and by process of elimination from the ThyssenKrupp website choices of residential elevators.
