PICS: 1960s house exposed beams and ceiling tiles question
Hi. We are interested in purchasing a house that was built in 1960. It needs some TLC - kitchen and bathroom updates along with a new ceiling. It has acoustic tiles. They are 12x12 white squares. But there are also exposed beams which I love, but I'm just trying to figure out what may possibly be under these tiles and what kind of project and funds would be involved in a new ceiling for this retro home.
Of course, if we'd purchase, I'd get a contractor and estimates etc. I'm just trying to decide if we should rule it out or not. Does it seem like it would just be a process of removing the tiles and then floating sheetrock? I'm sorry that the pictures don't show the tiles themselves, but you can see the beams. That's what makes it different. Usually you see these tiles with no beams. Do the beams complicate things? What's in a ceiling with a house that has exposed beams?
Ok. Sorry. I'm all over the place. What say you?
Thanks ladies and gents!
