Ceiling remodeling


Small house by the sea.
I would like to remodel the current flat drywall ceiling and expose and finish the trussed attic to give it a higher and vaulted look to larger rooms leaving the two baths with low ceilings aswell as the garage.

Modifying a roof structure requires some careful engineering so the walls don't push out---
