Raising the Ceiling
February 3, 2013 in Photo Questions
How much of a problem was it to raise the ceiling? My house was partially remodeled where the original back wall of the house was opened up to the rear porch addition. The porch ceiling is 7ft and the main house ceiling is 10ft. We had to level the floor joists with blocks on the porch due to rot and termite damage. But, that is temporary because the termite damage is extensive and the whole addition needs to be replaced. So would like to raise the roof also. How much height did you gain and how many feet was needed on the exterior? Thanks
