How to prepare corners for tongue and groove board install?
During construction the corners were not prepared to install tongue and groove boards. Where the ceiling meets the end wall is confusing for me since there isn't a nailer at the end of the board. The ceiling boards can be nailed to the rafters, but then there is nothing to nail the boards that meet from the end wall.

Perhaps this video can provide you some answers.
You could attach your own nailing strips along the end walls. Just get some 2x4's, cut them to fit and screw them to the side walls. They should provide a good way to anchor your T&G ceiling. Good luck
In watching the video Lois posted, the narrator comments on how well the cutouts for the outlets came out. Unfortunately he did not do them to electric code specifications. The box needs to be flush with the outer face of the T&G. This is a common mistake. You cannot leave a gap between the box/outlet and a combustible material. You also cannot just put spacers in to move the outlet out without putting in a box extender. Extenders are cheap and easy to use. If you are applying T&G to the walls and the walls are still open, you may need to move the boxes out. If the walls are up, add extenders to make them flush once the T&G is up. The same would be true for ceiling fixtures if you are just using the T&G on the ceiling.
