Stiltz Self Build

Many homeowners are working with architects and builders to design a home which means they will not have to move house again. In these cases, it is imperative for them to future-proof their self-build or remodelling project.

Therefore, many people are choosing to install a Stiltz Home Lift as an alternative to using the stairs. This is because domestic lifts by Stiltz provide a simple and easy way of travelling between floors without any fuss. Home lifts are also ideal and far more attractive option than a traditional stairlift.

Mr and Mrs Simpson, based in Devon, decided the two-person Stiltz Duo Home Lift would be the best way of future-proofing their property. The couple, both in their sixties, were working with a German house builder to demolish their old bungalow and remodel it based on making the most of the location’s panoramic views. Once completed, the plan was for the client’s mother to move in, and, being in her nineties the inclusion of a home lift had obvious benefits for her too.

To compliment the streamlined and modern interior of their remodelled home the Duo Lift was ideal for the Simpson’s self-build home. The Stiltz requires no hydraulics or load bearing walls and plugs straight into the wall using a normal power socket, travelling through the floor on self-supporting rails.

The Stiltz Home Lift worked perfectly with the couple’s original sketched ideas and was installed behind contemporary wooden doors in the hallway and upstairs landing to match doors throughout the rest of the house.

Mr Simpson said: “The Stiltz lift is very neat, extremely practical and sensibly priced. We are very impressed with it – mostly because of its ease of use. We’d happily recommend Stiltz Lifts to anybody looking for a home lift.”
