Home Elevator FAQs
What Are Standard Home Elevator Dimensions?
As with many home elevator questions, the answer will depend on the unique layout of your home. At Arrow Lift, the standard interior cab for a home elevator is 15 square feet. But what about the space you’ll need to install an elevator?
Generally, when installing an elevator in your home, you will need a space that is at least 5’ x 5’, or 25 square feet of floor space. Please note that these are interior shaft dimensions that do not include the thickness of the shaft walls. However, our experienced team can examine the area and develop alternative options in many smaller spaces. In large spaces, you’ll have a range of elevator installation options. You can learn more about standard home elevator dimensions here.
How Long Does It Take to Install a Home Elevator?
Adding an elevator to your home involves a multi-step process. The installation phase typically takes anywhere from one to two weeks, depending on the elevator’s complexity. Prior to the installation phase is the design and construction process. This process has a lead time because it requires coordination between the elevator company and other trades.
