AFRAME false cieling
I am going to build a false ceiling in my room.
the width is 23' length is 24'.
i want to build an "A frame" type.
the slants will be 12' long. 24' on centers
I am wondering what i need to tie the top into.
2x10 at 24 ft. length ?
also wondering if i need to use 2x6s or 2x4s for the slope .
The load will be 2 layers of 5/8 sheetrock.

This is a 23'x24' existing room? What is the current ceiling type and height? If you're going with the 2' centers I'd advise to use the 2"x6" they will be less likely to sag than the 2"x4". Can you clarify a bit more as to what you're doing?
