New Ceiling for garage

Ann HargreavesDecember 26, 2006

I would like to add a ceiling to our garage and insulate it. It is about 20' wide. It currently has 2x6 lumber every 4' or so. What dimension lumber should I use for the joists, and what spacing between them?

Most homes built today use 2x4 trusses. They are on 24" centers.
