Longtime reader Peter P. wrote in with an excellent question about ceiling construction. Since ceiling work can be a big deal, we thought opening it up to the readership would be the thing to do.
My dad is working on building out his basement workshop, and is trying to decide between suspended ceilings versus drywall. Drywall is cheaper, but will limit access to the plumbing and wiring. Suspended ceiling will give easy access, but at the cost of some clearance. Have any other Toolmongers faced this problem?
Thanks for the question, Peter. We hope the comments that come in help you and your dad get where you need to go on this project.
