    BIG RED FLAG ! ! Please take this seriously.
    The ceiling joists that are doubled for hanging weight MUST have double studs underneath each end. Ceiling to floor so the weight on the joists is supported down to the concrete. Right now the joists are in between two studs without support. When you hang weight on the ceiling joists it will break the top wall plate and someone can be seriously hurt or killed.
    Even in regular construction where there is not added weight – double studs are required under doubled joists to meet National building codes. THERE IS A REASON for this. The top plate of your wall is laying flat across the studs. That position is the weakest for the board. The top plate SHOULD have been doubled. (Two layers of wood across the top of the studs) Since it was not this is even more crucial.
    I've built many houses – better than code. Please trust Me on this and PLEASE add two studs under each end of the doubled ceiling joists.
    That is the minimum.
    If it were Me I would triple the ceiling joists and triple the studs underneath.
    Code requires double if there is a wall on top. What you will be adding/doing is heavier than a wall.
    A ceiling is weakest in the middle of a room. Add the weight of track and hanging hardware, the weight of the carcass, the weight of you pulling on the carcass as you cut downward and it becomes dangerous with just two boards. If the ceiling gives way while you're working with a boning knife – it could be fatal. THAT is why I would triple the joists and studs.
    Texas may not require this build to be code but the codes are there for the safety of the occupants. In this situation they really should be followed.
    Please choose #1 prime wood for these few boards. Use subfloor adhesive sandwiched between each board and SCREW AND GLUE EVERYTHING. 🙂
    If you have any doubts please look up images of Framing to code. You'll see how often double, triple and quadrupled studs/joists are used to carry heavy loads.
    Best of luck. -KJ
