I really like the look of tongue in groove ceilings in rustic homes. So I priced it out and realized it would be way outside my budget. I really dislike gyproc ceilings for all kinds of reasons, so what were we to do? One thing I thought of was using click lock laminate flooring and have even seen people online who have done just that. But it wouldn’t be the way to go for us. Cost, weight, and difficulty of installing all made me look for another solution. So we came up with one that seems like it will work great for us. We used 3/8 plywood sheets, cut them into strips and stained them. Then they were put up using brad nails with my manual staple gun.
Speaking of ‘tongue in groove’ I’m so glad we are almost at the end of the American election season. It will be nice when the politicians just get back to ignoring the public and stealing from them.
