Is This A Good Beam To Hang my Bag On?
 
I'm hanging my 100lb heavybag and figured this would be a good beam to hang it on. I'm a little worried though, I just don't want to cause any damage to my house (it's brand new). The beam is in my garage (obviously) right below my office. Thanks.

Well, it looks like you already have it there anyway so go ahead and work the bag and see if the garage falls down.

Please post a picture if it does.

What is above the garage? Another floor? An attic? From your picture, that beam looks too small to be any sort of structural support given the length it spans. It's also oriented in the wrong direction. Did it flex or sag any when you installed the bag?

As your office is immediately above the place where the bag is hanging, get a 200 lb. friend to jump up and down on the office floor. If the floor doesn't collapse, you're good!
