New Member - old question

Hey folks,

I just joined the DIY Chatroom because i came across a few postings online and it seemed like you all had a good sense of what you were talking about.

The long and short is that I was looking for some help with coffered ceilings. I've never done this and while it seems straightforward, there seem to be a number of ways you can go about...U-shaped frames...or just installing 2x4s with a 1" top and some kind of molding on the sides.

The room I am working with is probably about 17x17. I'd say the height is about 9-10ft. Any thoughts you can offer about how best to go about this project so I can avoid some first timer pitfalls. Also, I was thinking of filling the spaces with MDF or something similar so that I don't have to drywall or plaster in the future. (The existing ceiling is plaster by the way and there is a ceiling fan in the middle)

Thanks for any feedback!
