I am removing a center load bearing wall in a ranch house and planning on a replacing with a recessed beam supported on 2 ends with post...
Pretty straightforward, however the ceiling in this home has radiant heat with 1/4 inch copper tubing embedded in the ceiling plaster. Putting in temporary support walls is almost impossible given all the copper tubing in the ceiling.
Is there a way to temporarily support the ceiling joists from above? Attic has roof rafters with non load bearing ridge beam.

Thanks for any help.
