How 2 build house w/ exposed-beam ceiling?
What is the most cost-effective and efficient way to build a house with an exposed-beam ceiling?
Is it to build the to-be exposed ceiling structure first and then add insulation on the top (exterior) followed by a roof after the insulation is in place? (in essence building from the inside out)
OR would you add a "false" or decorative-only beamed ceiling underneath a standard framed and insulated ceiling?
Both are probably possible. I'm curious about the pros and cons associated with each. Thanks.
