Hello! I want to install two hanging chairs or one floating bed from my ceiling in front of a bay window. I am wondering with that much weight (including 2 people sitting in them so say maybe 400lbs), would I need some sort of beam? And is it possible to do a beam on the exterior of the ceiling? There is a floor above, so there is already some weight load but nothing extra heavy. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! TIA
