Sedona Cable Lift

Our friends on the red rock bluffs of Arizona head up to the ridge in their new Cable LIft.  Next project: build a house up there!

Arizona Cable Lift

Not all Cable Lifts are on the waterfront.  This one is going to a house to be built on a red rock cliff bluff near Sadona, Arizona.  The tram will ride over the red rock cliff to the crest of the hillside.  The concrete pad at the top is shown...the driveway and garage is at the bottom.  Concrete had to be pumped about 250' uphill.  A helicopter will be used, along with the Cable Lift, to build a dream house at the top.  The pad shown will have a steel structure bolted to it, and  the machne room will be under the deck, which adjoins the house on the main floor.


You would think that a tram is a tram, and one style would fit everyone.  But it's not so.  This situation required an entry through the upper end, and an exit at the bottom through the side toward the home entry.  While a lot of folks use color powder coating, an uncoated aluminum car such as this one fits the architectural style of many homes.  They also opted for aluminum and glass railings built similar to the car at each landing.
