You should do a little of yours every day and by the time your cabinets are done, so too will be your ceiling.

Like usual you have to look after someone else's stuff before you can do yours. Ain't it always the way? However like the old saying goes "When the sun shines, ya gotta make hay". Good luck and thanks for letting me weigh in. When you "get'er done" post your pictures so the rest of us can have a gander. Oh, by the way, I finally fingered out how to post the pictures I wanted to show you guys. I can figure out how ta build a curved stair but not how to push the right friggin button on the Putor.

i wish i could work on my stuff at the same time, but with limited space and time it doesnt work out. Trying to build about 24' worth of cabinets in a small one car garage isnt the easiest chore, ive pretty much turned my whole first floor of my house into a wood shop.

Yeah, I can see where space could be a problem. I run into that all the time. My wife would be a little pissed though is I started choppin and glueing in the living room. My advice to you is don't put your miter box too close to the kitchen sink cause the blade'll get rusty. Heh, heh, heh. The guy I use for lumber right now is a gentleman out of Waconia. His prices are very reasonable and he will deal in small quantities (25-50 BF lots to where ever). He is the perfect wholesale supplier for the small shop. Strictly cash and carry. You pick up the stuff at his warehouse. If you like go to www thestairguy com email me from there and I will give you the phone number and address. Have a great day. ROLe.

Thanks for the tips

One thing you might want to consider, when redoing your ceiling is fire resistance. Drywall has natural fire resistance. Before you start putting wood ceilings up check your local building codes. It might be in violation due to low fire resitance. I believe some jurisdictions specify gyproc for this reason. Just a thought.

Gerry, I am interested in more information (if you have any) on that issue? I recently put up pine ceilings in several rooms in my residence and never once thought about how it could be against any bldg codes etc....

I wish I had information on this Clive, but I don't. I haven't checked my area codes, as this house was long built when we bought it. There is cedar panelling on almost all the ceilings. It looks great, and I wouldn't change it, I was just wanting to let people know that they might want to look at their local codes. Some areas might require drywall between the wood panelling and the structure to act as a fire break.

Good point Gerry!

I was considering using mdf for the coffered look......but now you've got me wondering. I will have to look into that a little further.

Thanks,
Rick

I spent several hours today on the net looking for information on the subject... found such a wide range of answers... a few that said you only need a layer of drywall barrier on exterior walls and ceilings, another that said just attached garages, some people said you don't need it at all, others said its required... so now I'm even more confused than ever!!!! I will see if I can find anything else

Sorry if I got you all messed up Clive. In Canada we have a National Building Code, and we also have building codes in various jurisdictions. I am not sure how your federal system works as far as building codes go, but I suspect that it is more up to the individual towns, cities, or counties. Go to your city's building department and ask for a set of local building codes, or ask them a direct question. Don't tell them up front that you have already done it, just say you are thinking of doing it, just in case you don't like the answer. I will also have to add that some areas, up here at least, are classified as unorganised, and the building codes are pretty loose.
I just thought that people should take this into consideration because some areas are very tight on their building codes.

I am fortunate in that I live in an unorganised area, so I can almost do pretty much what I want. I still try to stay to code, for the sake of resale, and safety.
