The 1x3 wood slats are spaced at 3" on center. The space is 1/2". Thanks for your interest.

The bulkhead down the middle of the space conceals a steel beam, ductwork, heating hot water pipes and some wires. But, on the whole, we did not conceal the wires. We only minimized the wires and made them more tidy before painting all white. Track lighting between the joists makes the new lighting unobtrusive.

How well does this space stay warm during the winter without ceiling insulation? - Hi - I'd love to keep our basement ceiling open like the one featured here, but I was under the impression we would need to insulate in order to keep it warm during the winter. Am I missing something?

Can you spray the metal ducts with the same paint? Or do you need to use a primer?

Good point! Where would you find something like Kregg Jig? Are there other alternatives to this kind of structure in the cellar? The only other idea I can think of is stone. Thanks.

The Kreg Jig should be available at any quality woodworking store. It allows you to fasten pieces of wood with butt joints that are very strong. The screws ued are inserted on an angle and are tight enough that they don't need glue.Busy Bee Tools.com in Canada will have this jig. Come to think of it the screws are Robertson (square Head) and so maybe mostly available in Canada but really good stuff.
Best I can do.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Laura Gaskill added this to 11 Ways to Finesse Your Finished Basement
Conceal pillars, pipes and other less-than-attractive details. Check with a knowledgeable source before covering anything, to be sure you are not creating a safety hazard or blocking needed access. That caveat aside, it can be worth it to invest some of your basement budget into coverings (like the sleek horizontal wood panels shown here) that hide eyesores and help your space look really pulled together.
Cathy Lara added this to A Gloomy Basement Lightens Up
AFTER: Wentworth solved the problem of uneven floor slabs in the basement by pouring a liquid leveler prior to installing large-scale porcelain tiles. The tiles resist moisture and stains and are easy to clean, making them a great choice for a basement family room and play area.
Plan the placement of the playroom in relation to adult spaces. This is especially important if your kids are fairly young, since you’ll want to keep an eye on them while they’re at play. “Most often, parents like to reposition the furniture so that they can watch television and the kids at the same time,” says interior designer Lisa Wolfe of Lisa Wolfe Design. “Figure this out before you determine which section of the basement will become the new kids' room so you create a space the entire family can enjoy.”
