Very nice work!

Too bad the electrician couldn't get their light centered.

Yeah that was done when the home was built 4-5 years ago...probably installed on the closet joist to the center of the room....too bad they didn't have ESP about the coffered ceiling going in a few years later...

Here's the whole process of the coffered ceiling:

NOT Trying to be a wise guy.... BUT why aren't any of the squares(coffers) equal.????

I had drawn it with all equal coffers in the first drawings I did for the clients, but they preferred the middle beams to line up between the windows, I could have gone either way, but they're paying for it and living with it..

That's a class job Jay. How high was that ceiling? I have a sister in the Roswell area who is a realtor and I see some of those type ceilings when I go look at houses she has on the market, their always very nice. On that one the shades of paint make it look just so right. I have a job coming up where I have to do two rooms with crown and they "have" to match the existing stained crown in the other rooms, this one should be fun in matching the stain that has aged. Be proud of that coffered ceiling job Jay. Thanks, David

Thanks David, the ceilings were 18' ... I like to stay on the ground (cut man) and hand the stuff up ...

I used to go through Roswell (very nice area) all the time 5-6 years ago, I'm not far from there (Cumming, GA). Good luck with the stain matching, it's usually an adventure...just takes some patience, and in my case, lots of samples
