Install Faux Wooden Beams

5 Days

Architectural detail is given to a room's plain slanted ceiling. The faux beams (they are not intended for structural applications), were built on a three sided box design, out of 1 x 4 material. Then they were attached to the 2 x 4 cleats on the ceiling.
They totally transformed the feeling of the room!

    It might be awhile before we get to that part of the finish work of our home. Although it's next in line for finishing since it ties with the main entry which we are working on now.

    I am doing this using reclaimed lumber that would have otherwise ended up in a landfill. However my ceiling truss spacing is off, so not sure how to anchor a couple of the cleats that don't have a truss above. Any suggestions?
