Have you ever wondered what is under the ceiling drywall?

Most people don’t really care or at least until they go to hang artwork on the wall.

In actuality, what is under the drywall is really quite interesting and artful. Framing walls and ceilings are quite complex. It has to hit code and structural integrity as well as follow the plans. I assume most men (yes, I’ve never seen a woman up on a ladder framing) are really good at Legos. It’s not an individual sport. Watching the guys framing usually means that one guy is on the ground cutting and measuring the lumber while the other guys are on a ladder hammering away. It is a form of impressive artwork.

Rooflines create interesting ceiling lines that are simply finished with drywall. Also, not an easy task. Just know that underneath that cool ceiling, are really cool framing materials. This will bring a whole new appreciation for all the hard work done by the crew to create your beautiful surroundings.

Next time you see really cool lines, try to imagine the pattern underneath.
