Default Homemade Elevator

Been quiet in the Illinois Forum for a while so I thought I would post a few photos for your amusement. "Homemade" elevator I came across during an FHA assignment over the weekend. Why me?

OMG, that is hilarious! How many stories I must ask? I love that they use the original interior door and drywall on the interior cage. It just looks like a moving closet!

Was the property owned at one time by a serial killer?

"OH, thats just an empty closet officer. Nope the appraiser never did show up for the appointment"

Wait a couple of months. Put a fake solar panel on the roof and say it is a green staircase. Then the Government will give you a tax credit and perhaps a subsidy. You may even get a break on your utilities.
