I want to hang a yoga swing from the ceiling (last floor, ceiling is insulated with some loose substance, if it makes a difference). The yoga swing needs two bolts, one to two meters apart.
I'd rather not make holes in the existing structure so, I'm wondering if the plan below is sensible:
The grey part are existing joists. The green part would be a new 4x4. I guess I would need some sort of strong-ties to prevent it from moving/sliding. I guess the best way to get bolts would be some sort of lag bolts. There could be mild acrobatics happening, but the load should not go above 400 lbs / 200 Kg.
The ceiling joist are 2x6. I'll go check their distance and length.
- What sort or strong-ties should I used?
- Are there any faults in this plan?
- Any special lag bolts I should get?
