        Here are the latest, greatest interior pictures. First up is the platform lift. It took much longer than expected to install the lift -- they had to remove the track twice to get it positioned correctly. In this photo, the lift is in the stowed (folded) position.

          The bottom of the track.

            Exterior door lever. Even though I had specified levers, instead of knobs, about 30 times over the past year, knobs were initially installed. They finally got it right.

              Living room, looking out onto deck. They raised the deck to eliminate the threshold.

                This photo was taken in the dining room, looking through the kitchen and into the living room. The cabinetry still needs hardware.

                  Clipper, your house looks very nice, I wish I could live like that [img]/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img]

                  I only have one question, why don't you have an electic kitchen? I mean, where everything is going up and down so you can reach everything while you are sitting.

                  Otherwise, your house is great.

                    I don't cook or have a desire to (I am C5/6 complete), so I really only need access to the food pantry, refrigerator, microwave, drawers and countertops. An electric kitchen wouldn't have been very useful for me. [img]/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img]

                      OK, then I understand why.

                      I am waiting for the electric kitchen, and I am looking foreward to it because I get crazy the way it is now. I can't even get a glass down when I am sitting and the dishes is making me crazy [img]/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img]

                            In that dining room into kitchen and living room shot, the house looks like it goes farther back than the exterior shot led me to believe. It was probably just the angle of the exterior shot though.

                                Looks real good Clipper, love those hardwoods. Looks like a good lift setup too. I have a lift going downstairs, but it is just a chair lift and I have to transfer, I get tired of doing so many transfers just to get downstairs. I have often thought about welding a platform to the chair frame so that it will carry the whole chair down the stairs.

                                Its funny, that shadow in the first picture looks like the jolly green giant, lol.
