I prefer catapulting these items to roof level using a machine I made with garage door springs but this method makes the neighbors nervous. :D

Me too, I don't have a clear idea of what you're asking. But i think it involves lifting stuffs with pulley and rope. There's really no problem with that, but you might want to consider where to attach the pulley, load capacity of the rope, as well the weight of the object being lifted.

Whatever you're planning to do keep it safe.

Ropes and pulleys have a working load and an ultimate strength. Also be aware of safety factor, it's 10 or more when personal safety is involved.

And there are a half-dozen kinds of ropes, all with pluses and minuses. And the Hillman Hardware Website used to have a good tutorial on fasteners, pull-out and shear strengths.
