Heh Treehousers. I need some advice, my analysis paralysis is slipping into play. Lol.
My daughter the dancer is getting into aerials which is like a silk swing sort of. So to practice at home and her hearts desire for Christmas was her own setup she could work with to practice. Obviously very limited height wise but still endless fun I suppose for a 12 year old.
So my plan was to anchor it in the ceiling of a spare upstairs room something like this:
Then I'm finally healthy enough today to access my attic and it's filled way up with blown in insulation. If I try to access it I feel like I'm really going to mess things up. If I even get up in that attic I'm worried I'm gonna put to much pressure on my ceiling from above.
So what sort of anchors do y'all have and what would you consider doing in this scenario. Would a anchor point lagged into the bottom of a rafter be enough? I could split it into two anchors and have one in each rafter adjacent each other but it would seem regardless that either one anchor should be able to take the weight/potential loading that a crazy kid could put on it?
Any thoughts or pics of setups that you guys have would be appreciated.
