A homeowner in Colorado was looking for a solution to park his automobile collection in his garage-gallery as part of his new home design. However, because of the structural design plans of his new house, a standard car lift design for driving on and off the lift in a forward or reverse direction would not be possible. Once the lift is lowered to the garage-gallery, a wall would block the cars from driving forward, and a staircase from behind the preventing a reverse direction. The challenge was to design a lift system with a side exit, so the vehicles could be driven into the garage-gallery and parked for showroom display. The other variable was designing a car lift that could support the varying degree of sizes and capacities of the owner’s vehicles.
