I would say. Build the house "elevator ready" but don't install the elevator. Instead build those paces into closets. At your age, I would assume that a closet/storage would be more useful then an elevator. And later down the road when you feel you need an elevator install it then in. You would have all the structural and electrical requirements their. Plus this way you will save over the years and not have to have all that maintenance on a not very used elevator, and nobody has to think that you are lazy (as some comments have suggested). This is actually what my husband and I plan on doing. When/if the real reason you think an elevator will be handy is because of the future then just wait for the future to install it. Who knows, in that time maybe a better elevator will exist for homes.
Home Elevator, Yea or Nay?
