It’s incredibly common for us to install residential elevators so that our clients are able to age in place. In this wonderful horse farm property in Oakton VA, this was certainly the case—the client even joked that they had planned to stay “until they take us out in a box!” Humor aside, this particular property owner had no current physical need for a home elevator but was planning ahead for their future. This is why we ended up opting for a Stiltz home elevator, a great choice for homeowners planning to age in place in the Oakton VA area.
The Oakton VA community is similar to many in the Fairfax VA area—it’s notably quiet, safe, and offers an idyllic living experience. Whether you’re taking a trek down to the farmer’s market or just enjoying the long stretches of beautiful landscapes, it’s clear that Oakton VA has plenty to offer its residents. Being able to tackle unique jobs like this horse farm property is always a pleasure when we head to Fairfax VA.
The Stiltz Trio Alta, which is the Stiltz home elevator used for this particular project, is a new product defined by its spacious design. That design doesn’t sacrifice utility—in fact, it can fit an entire full-sized wheelchair or up to three passengers, all while still evoking a sense of luxury. That balance between style and luxury is why we often recommend a Stiltz home elevator to homeowners in the Oakton VA area and beyond, particularly the new Trio Alta model which has clear sides that allow it to be a perfect match for any aesthetic a homeowner may have.
In this Oakton VA project, we had to deal with a very specific design challenge: the home was large enough that no outside shaft was necessary, but it was also small enough that displacing 25 square feet per floor wasn’t desirable. A typical elevator would not do. Instead, we took advantage of what a Stiltz home elevator can offer and found a way to make this client’s home more accessible without taking up too much of their precious floor space. A design that wasn’t obtrusive was the only way to go with this particular job.
