if you mount your swing from the ceiling, you need to make sure to hit some framing that can support the weight. there is alot of wood that is only there to support sheet rock, plumbing pipe, ect.. i would not spend the money on a swing stand. My house is a 1 story. I crawled about my bedroom and added a 4X12 beam, spread between 2 truss's. It was over kill. She only weighs 120. But i did not want any movement from the truss to cause cracks in the sheet rock. If you can find a truss, or a floor joist; and get the I-bolt dead center in the peice you found, it will hold the 200 pounds that the swing is rated for. Hope that helps.
