It's interesting to note as I peruse the photos taken during this project how many times the room has rotated between an utter chaotic mess and relatively clean & neat. Each phase brings a new and different clutter consisting of supplies & materials, tools and to this point, high volumes of dust.
Up goes the ceiling. Knotty pine, 1x5 end-matched tongue & groove. It goes together extremely well and looks great so far... but we've got to clean up this room so we can work!
This is where we stopped today. A couple more hours work will complete the ceiling. The immediate objective was to get the wood up near the fireplace so the mason can install stone right to the ceiling. Those photos will be coming soon.
