Balcony or Deck Hoist

Has anyone rigged up a hoist to raise groceries (or whatever) to a second level balcony or deck? Someone rigged one for a friend of mine in Conway, SC. He lives on the Wacamaw river and his house is elevated per the building code. He has back problems and his wife has knee problems so someone rigged him a motorized hoist with a swing jib at the top. They just place a basket on the hook and hit the up button on the pendant control. I haven't seen it as Conway is a bit too far to travel on a whim gas prices being what they are.

Can't help you there, but my grandfather used to have a ski lift type of set up to haul stuff from the valley to his house up the hill. Sort of like a ski lift without the chairs, just one flat bed trailer type of contraption and a motor. Always worked well when I was a kid, but we were never allowed to ride on it because it wasn't "reliable".

If you have the room, a dumb waiter is pretty easy to install, especially if you have a Harbor Freight nearby for the motorized parts.
