Does My Home Elevator Need a Machine Room?
A home elevator is an ideal solution for a homeowner who has limited mobility and cannot climb the stairs. A residential elevator can make all the floors in a house accessible and is relatively easy to install. Some models require a machine room, while others do not. Whether your home is large or small, you can find an elevator that is the right size.
