The lift, supplied by Evo Lifts of Southampton*, was finally commissioned today and it is magnificent. I promised to post a picture of the lift shaft as soon as the lift was completed - and here it is. Granted, it is only the inside of the lift shaft, which is a bit frustrating at this stage. There is a reason for my reluctance to post pictures of the lift platform and the outsides of the lift shaft. Grandson James (he who has enquired about the lift at every stage in the building process), is visiting us in a couple of days and I do not want to spoil the surprise for him. Pictures of the lift in a couple of days therefore. Meantime, the inside of the lift shaft is pretty good isn't it?
* We really did try to find a local supplier but failed. You really would have thought that somebody in nearby Keighley, a town whose main industry is lifts and escalators, could have done us a lift. But no.
