Reimagining the Ceiling

The original drywall in the old garage was probably hung about 30 years ago and never finished. Most of it has weathered fairly well, but the sheets on the ceiling were sagging badly and needed a creative solution. What you see here was my son Michael’s idea. Using some 1×4 spruce, he screwed each length across the ceiling’s joints above, creating a support for the tired drywall. The result, once freshly painted, looks really good and has gotten compliments from visitors.
