Hitting the ceiling

I picked out my ceiling and loft wall materials and got them delivered Thursday, and was raring to go Monday to start on the ceiling. The ceiling is 1″x6″ shiplap pine, here’s 320 linear feet of it in my garage:


I really like this material, it’s quite substantial and has fewer knots and defects in it than the cedar I used for the walls. The process is to nail 3-4 boards into place (for those scoring at home, I’m using 16 gauge 2″ finishing nails) and stuff the cavities with wool insulation.


I made good progress today, completing 2/3 of the ceiling and using up two bags of wool so far.
