Ceiling Framing StartThe beam and column are boxed in, as are the snorkels in the theater. The ceiling in the theater will be stepped and coffered so that there isn’t just a low-hanging box in the middle of the room. I’ve got 2x3s screwed to the joists to give space to the sprinkler system. This will also partially decouple the drywall ceiling, making for less sound transmission between the floors, especially once the space between the joists is stuffed with insulation.
