A friend of mine, doing what you are attempting but in reverse...cut a hole in the roof of his house - attic floor..into the living room...through the living room floor straight into the basement...and dropped the equipment down with a crane.
Obviously, he's not married. Or, not married anymore!

actually he was and remained married until his passing a few years ago.

used excuse of his wife going away to 'visit family for a week' to 'repaint living room and put down new carpet' while she was gone.

she chose all of the colors ahead of time so was very pleased with the work upon her return.

I lost touch with her when I moved in 1977, so I never found out how she dealt with the machinery in the basement.

is why I have a ground level entrance to my basement / shop...
Too many things going on to bother listing them.

I remember seeing images of the machine being lowered through the hole in the roof/house.

Operating machines is perfectly safe......until you forget how dangerous it really is!

The true hobbyist always finds a way to get it done—even if it means hoisting machinery through the roof. :D
