    That style is very prevalent around these parts, but we are in a very historical area and they look great in Victorian style homes. Not much harder to put in than a drop tile ceiling either. I went to diner last night with the Mrs, and the restaurant had one done in copper tiles. For the price and ease of installation, I would go for it.

    Can't say much about ceilings, but how's your spider bite?

    It probably won't go away soon. Trust me, I know.

    Thing is, all of the home needs to match the look of the overall style for it to look right. You can't mix chrome and glass furniture with antiques even in a trailer. I have

    I got a minor spider bite this week sometime, no pain but a circular mark. My second; the first swelled my foot. I think I got the first one from putting on waders that had been stored in my garage.

    I'm pretty tolerant of spiders living in my house, but not any more. Death to spiders. I'll tolerate camel crickets, for now at least.

    I am tolerant of spiders Gene, but this thing messed me up pretty good. I put on a pair of sneakers from the shoe rack in the garage, and my garage you can eat off the floor it is so clean. No rings around the bite, but you could see the raised bites with fang marks. Less than 48 hours and my foot was black. That's when I went to the emergency room. I have an exterminator coming in on Monday to bomb the house again. Damn things are in killable.

    You might want to consider acoustics before installing a metal ceiling in your house. In the last house I owned we had a kitchen & family room area that was about 25x30 feet. After a flood destroyed the carpeting and cabinets we decided to put tile in the entire area. I regretted that decision, because after the installation the room sounded like we were inside a steel drum because of the reflection of sound that we now had, instead of being absorbed by the carpet. I suspect you might have the same problem with a steel ceiling. Echo's of voices and music in that room were awful after that.

    Its all wood and tile floors now, and a Masonite ceiling in the kitchen where the tin is going. Probably won't make much difference. This house is surprisingly echo free. We're not going to do it just yet anyway - although I did order some samples - too many other projects in the pipe. Need to finish up some minor sheetrock repair, get my workshop squared away, get the generator all hooked up, and get the over the range microwave/cabinet installed, removing that stupid space hog of a stand alone range hood.

    It's only clever if you know what it means.

    Something similar can be had for cheap, if you don't mind not having the real thing. The home despot has a 2X4 glue on panel that (in theory) replicates the look for less than half the money as near as I can tell.
    I've seen those too, I betting the average person couldn't tell the difference when they're installed. Lots lighter and much easier to work with than tin.

    DeanC just put some faux tin squares made of Styrofoam on his ceilings, hit them with a rattle can and you cant tell the difference. Until the boys stick a #2 pencil in the ceiling.
