The 2015 New American Home has been completed and was showcased in conjunction with the International Builders Show, recently held in Las Vegas. The home features some incredible cutting-edge technologies. Guests were allowed to book tours of the home while visiting the convention and these tours proved to be incredibly popular.
A Garaventa Home Elevator is showcased in The 2015 New American Home. It features an inline drive system, an 8 ft. tall cab, a powered cab gate and a mirror installed on the back wall.
A virtual website has been launched at www.newamericanhome2015.com . Click on the Garaventa Lift logo as it scrolls along the bottom of the page to see the elevator.
Our congratulations go out to Ross Elevator of Little Rock, Arkansas for capturing their first Garaventa Lift Project of the Month. The installation was at a gorgeous waterfront home located at historic Lake Hamilton in the Hot Springs area. The nearby area is well-known for a couple of reasons. Hot Springs National Park was the first ever National Park in the USA. Since the United States essentially invented the concept of National Parks, it could be that this is the oldest National Park in the world.
Another interesting fact about the area is that it was home to many notorious gangsters during the prohibition era of the 1920’s and early 1930’s. Local legend has it that Al Capone owned a home on Lake Hamilton and had a secret tunnel installed that went from his Living Room to his boat launch on the lake for a speedy exit.
Today, the area is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Arkansas.
