There's really no way for us to give advice on this - you need someone to come out and see what you're dealing with.

Do you have enough room in the ceiling cavity to move it up there? If you do, then it shouldn't be a big deal to do it - but it must be done correctly, else you'll end up with airflow issues.

Are you concerned about head space, or just want to hide it? If you just want to hide it, box around it with lumber, sheetrock it, and paint.

I believe it is post construction duct work. Also, there is a living area above. The return is above ceiling level. I guess my real question is what size duct work do I have to use for the main supply line?

The duct is 6 1/4" x 14". Depth of floor board b/w ceiling is 7 1/2". I believe there is room to move it up rather than put up soffit. I'd like it out of site.

Is it a DIY job or should I bring someone in?

Need to know size of system to coment on duct sizes (a/c size heat type and size). If currently working then one would assume it is sized correctly but who knows. If you have room for it above the ceiling than you could put it in there. It will need to be insulated once it goes above the ceiling.

I spoke with several GC's and an HVAC guy. They say 3.25" x10" is fine. Now I have to figure out the rest and I'm sure I'll be coming here for more help
