That really helped me out Matt.

So you came down with the lag BOLTS through the flange holes with washers, and then up with the lag SCREWS plus washers for attaching the 2x6 to the rafters.

Man, that really helps me out. Makes perfect sense now. Excellent. Your ceiling is exactly like mine.

Thanks buddy!
