New Porch Ceiling

The porch celing had to be removed due to a lead abatement. We are replacing the old tounge and groove boards with 3/8" beaded plywood.

The existing framing had beams 24" on center, that spanned 12 feet. They were very wobally, so we added several cross braces with 2x material.

The sheets of plywood were installed with 2 inch nails, every 6". We started at the center where the light fixture was and worked our way out.
