Just a suggestion on the rafters you can figure out which ones need to be removed, and put 2x6 cross bracing at the top of your exesting rafters that are left over from the bottom to the top every 2' and if you only need to clear half the area of the rafters not the full length then you can cross brace in the center of the peek of the rafters, also instead of flat plate on the hoist at the bottom you could run L brackets out away from the bottom and bolt to hoist and the floor on each side just use a heavy steel L bracket, then if you need to remove it for some reason you just have to unbolt it.
