I would really try not to use a drop ceiling if you are going for a really rustic look.

I wish I had some pictures to show you how great everything looked until you looked up, but sadly, I don't.

If you somehow built your own wood grid and used wood panels there is no reason you can't figure out how to make them removable. They might even need to be screwed up there, but you could still consider them removable because I doubt you will be taking them down unless something happens where you need access.
I could always focus on the areas that need to be removable and make those areas removable.

Maybe doing some rustic beams throughout and wood paneling that is removable, maybe resting on some crown.......as was discussed before. That would make it easier and I wouldn't have to put up as many beams..........which would be the biggest pain.

Check this link out.

I don't have a clue if these are any good or not, but it is similar in design to what I was thinking would be cool with the tin, only use wood panels instead.

I bet you could make your own system similar to this, or maybe it would be a total nightmare. For me, it would be a nightmare, I would just buy it!

Keep scrolling down and look at the one above the pool table area.

hi, I'm thinking, maybe build false beams around perimeter. out of old barn board siding? then use barn boards as ceiling resting on false beams. would provide complete access. maybe add a couple glass slide holders or for bottle necks?

Guys/Gals, re-read the original post. This authentic Irish bar and bar ceiling we are talking about is exactly 48"x96". Must I convert this to feet or square feet? We are being jerked around and it really does not seem fun after a point? I must admit the suggestion to float a ceiling on top of the edges of crown molding brilliant though. Think of the money that could be saved with things like drywall nails and mud if drywallers and trim carpenters worked better together.

hold on one second semester! I'm not sure f this post is remnants of a new years bash, or sarcasm? if you have read the posters responses? you'll see Mills said.

" really like the idea of the "rough" look. Maybe using some reclaimed wood or something like that. Basically, I am just going to have that decorative ceiling over that area, and then the rest will be drop ceiling.

I am wondering if that will look funny or not.

Also, I am wondering if I can do anything to still make the ceiling still accessible, as i have a junction above the bar that controls all my under cabinet lighting."

it has nothing to do with trim carpenters and drywallers working better together! its about what Mills is trying to accomplish, he/she? needs access to space above.

yes drywall, nails, and mud may be cheaper. but,I've never seen a nice looking drywall access panel! even if is? he/she will be limited to that small area of access.

my post, using old barn boards, offers full access to entire 32 sq. ft. a fake 2" beam around perimeter of the area, will allow them to cut 95" boards to lay on beams, will never fall, yet completely removable

Ah yes. Angel wing construction. I remember now. Nail two open faced bibles to the ceiling joists and then hang any sort of ceiling panel from the wall trim molding. Resting only on its edges.

This is stupid people. The more we post, the more we are going to possibly hurt this guy who wants to do what he wants to do without are help anyhow.

Im going to do what makes sense, and is economically viable. Yes, drywall and mud would be cheaper..........however as I stated before, I have junctions and other things up there that I need access to in the event that I have an issue.

The reason the post has gone on for so long is that ideas have been kicked around and things have evolved. I have thought about things that I didn't consider before in regards to how it may look if I do only a small area and add a drop ceiling on the rest of it. If your only intention is to make cynical remarks and not contribute......go join the "occupy" movement, and have a nice day. The rest of us will continue to focus on solutions.

I was thinking, in regards to putting false beams in the entire bar area, and then adding crown molding around those and breaking the beams down into 4 x 4 sections.....would it be possible to use drywall pieces that large that are painted as my ceiling panels? that would give me the best of both worlds.......and still be accessible.

Basically, just wondering if the crown will hold the drywall panels, and if the drywall will stay rigid over time......

I am thinking that it might sag after a while, but im not a drywall guru either.

yes Mills, 4x4 drywall will sag in a short amount of time. will the crown molding hold it? that depends on the size and how well it's fastened? if it were me, I'g get molding that came out at least 2 1/2" to cover the tapered edges of drywall, that may look bad showing! I'd also get a few 4 foot ceiking grids and glue to the back of the drywall every 6-8 inches. that should stop it from sagging.

Thats what I was thinking. Using some crown that hides the edges of the drywall, and then actually screwing some 1 x 4's to the back of the sheetrock to make it somewhat rigid.

Think that would work equally?

Or am I just looking at short cuts at this point and maybe consider something else?

I suggested gluing 4' ceiling grids to eliminate ant screws going through the face of drywall. screws will eventualy pop. you can use whatever you like? just gue it good. no screws= no pops

Good call.

Have you seen something like this done before?
