T&G pine ceiling


I am going to do a tongue and groove pine ceiling at my cottage. I planned on strapping the roof trusses (24 o.c.) with 1x4 strapping at 16 o. c. then tongue nailing the pin to the strapping. The pine would run vertically.
Has any one done it this way or does any one see a problem with this method.

thanks gulbworks

Couple of questions. If this is a ceiling, how do you plan to put the pine in vertically? I assume you mean horizontally, but maybe I am totally confused about your plan.

As to nailing T&G to 1x4 strapping, that is pretty sketchy. Most of the T&G ceilings I have seen were attached directly to the floor joists, 16 inches OC. Since you have roof trusses, you would need to check with the truss manufacturer if it is acceptable to nail to the bottom of the trusses, if you plan to do it that way.

T&G is generally run horizontally, since it is a ceiling 24 oc is not a problem. However you should have drywall up first for fire considerations. Nailing into the trusses in fine.

Agreed you need some sort of fire barrier. And personally I thing nailing the pine vertically is going to look kind of weird. And vertically, I am not sure what you would nail it too without putting something the equivalent of a subfloor for a ceiling up there which will put a lot of weight on the trusses.

You know they do sell nice looking veneer sort of paneling for these sort of applications. Nice versions are pricey but you could hang it with the pattern vertical if going for a look.

Daniel, sorry I left out an important detail, the ceiling is a cathedral ceiling. The T&G would be parallel to the roof trusses.

That's beautiful woodwork Keith.

In this area I don't see drywall being installed first before the pine. It sure sounds like a good idea for fire. Thanks for bringing this up. I'll ask my building inspector if he requires it.

"I'll ask my building inspector if he requires it."

It would seem that a good idea is a good idea whether or not if the inspector requires it, no?
