Home Elevator
RE: Home Elevator
A technician from the elevator company was here to perform the semi-annual inspection/maintenance on my unit. All that was needed were a few minor adjustments and lubrication where needed. He'll be around again in March.  Great

My carpenter was here this week to do some work on a few small projects and minor repairs on the house. He added some insulation and seals around my elevator to reduce any heat loss this winter.  Great

RE: Home Elevator
I recently had to tell my sister and one of my nieces that I can no longer go to their houses for visits because I can't deal with the stairs anymore. I don't know what I'd be doing at home now if I hadn't had my elevator installed a couple of years ago. I did my grocery shopping yesterday and brought six bags of food up to the kitchen two at a time. My kitty supervised the operation from her perch atop the firewood stack in the cellar.  Tiny Tiger

RE: Home Elevator
Ever since my elevator was installed, I've always been concerned that it might be a conduit for heat loss during the winter. We've been experiencing a cold wave here (Chester, MA) over the past couple of weeks with nightly temperatures near or below zero. I rode the elevator up to the attic this morning and discovered that the vestibule is COLD. There's little or no heat going up the elevator shaft to the attic. I've also noticed no significant increase in heating oil consumption for the months of December, January and February.  Great

This evening I tricked my kitty into riding the elevator from the basement to the attic and down again. When I opened the door, she exited the cab as if she had been shot from a cannon. She probably won't speak to me for the next couple of days.  Tiny Tiger

Nothing unusual in that. Our cats talk to us all the time.

Yup.

They usually say, "feed me", "now that you've let me out, I want to come in again", "feed me again!", and, "kill them. Kill them all!"

All this Covid business has caused delays in my elevator service company's schedules. My home elevator was supposed to be inspected and serviced three weeks ago. I was finally contacted by their office a couple of days ago. A technician will be stopping by next week.  Great
