With so many great gadgets available to the modern home, one to consider when renovating would be a dumbwaiter.  A dumbwaiter is a fantastic help in the home whether you would use it for transporting morning breakfast, transferring freshly folded laundry, or firewood to a wood burning fireplace.  Dumbwaiters in older colonial homes were operated by pulley systems to bring cumbersome items from one floor level to another directly above or below.  New dumbwaiters have sophisticated engines, locks and lighting systems making the job even more convenient.  If you are considering installing one during a renovation, you must consider electrical hookup, and most importantly the space required for the shaft and mechanics.
