How tall are your 9 foot ceilings?
Okay, this is not a trick question! : ) The recent discussion on light rails and cab height above countertop got me to thinking in micro-inches. Oh yeah, not to mention 3mm vs 2mm counter tops. So I decided to change my status from lurker to poster (one post about a year ago) and ask my friends at GW my burning question. (arch is conveniently out of country) So here goes.
This is a new build. Our ceiling height will be 9 feet. The drawings that went to the structural last week clearly indicate 8 feet 11.25 inches. So that's 107.25, right? And I had been figuring 108 inches when planning for kitchen cabinets. Is this normal - will a 9' ceiling measure out 3/4" shorter?
And what about the drywall? Will they need to cut it down to fit - not on my dime - or is 9' drywall short by 3/4"??
Am I over thinking this or do I need tell my architect to go back to 108"? We are still under the max height limit by about 6" so the extra 3/4" in height will not be a permitting problem.
Thanks in advance for your responses.
A worried Honu.
