I ripped all the old ceiling down to bare 1x4 runners and decided to go with corrugated tin

This was nasty! Old insulation and cardboard everywhere, but I made it....and by the way get help if you can, I did the whole thing by myself...included hanging 16 ft sheets of tin!!! Not fun but it worked out

We are currently waiting on spiral duct work to replace this old box style that had a wooden frame built around it..pay no attention to him.

After a long couple day and a few more I finished the tin, hanging lights kinda, and waiting to come back home from working off to finish the molding around and install molding...cost was mostly lights wow they are expensive...tin was only 600 to do my whole ceiling in living room and kitchen. Which isn't pictured, not yet anyway

    @Kyle I've never seen tin used as an indoor ceiling, I rather like it! It can give an industrial, or rustic feel depending on your style of décor.... Great job!

    It's not all that expensive either and brings an outdoor feel inside

    i wonder if you could just put the tin OVER the existing ceiling and be done with it? would take some doing to locate the rafters but a lot less messy tearing all that down?

      Because you would still have the cardboard and any future leaks could cause mold, I really really like this look, industrial for sure. Good job.
