    Thank you for your inquiry. There is not drywall underneath. I used 4" of spray foam (and R-22 fiberglass batts) as my insulation to create an airtight assembly. It would be a good idea to use drywall or an air barrier underneath though if you are not using spray foam to control the air leakage. I hope this helps. Let me know if you have further questions. Thanks Kevin

    Thank you Kevin, already have part of the ceiling dry walled so I guess we will continue.

    I bought these lights off of Lightingdirect.com I am not sure what the wattage/lumens are for this fixture. You may be able to get more powerful bulbs. This isn't a very bright fixture just by itself. I hope this helps. Thanks for your inquiry.

    We hav these cable lights at our lake house. I opted for them vs. cans on our 20 ft ceiling for several reasons. I believe the transformers are 300 watts or so each. We have 5 lights on each of two transformers and they do a great job lighting our entire great room. I like that they can be pointed in any direction you want and that you can suspend them across a cathedral ceiling bringing the light down to where you need it. I also like that the bulbs are easy to reach with a standard step ladder for when they need changing. Mine are Tech brand, but there are several manufacturers now.

    The room is 15'x23'. The height of the walls I believe are about 9' tall and the peak of the ceiling is I think 15'. I hope that helps. Thanks for your inquiry.

A dilapidated garden shed in Browne’s yard instigated the move home. At the time Browne was working in a rented space in nearby Yarmouth, 25 minutes away from his home in Falmouth, Maine. Though the shed’s construction didn’t hold up, the idea did. Browne envisioned a studio that felt very New England, but he wanted to explore contemporary materials and building techniques. He didn’t want a 19th-century replica. The 16-foot by 24-foot studio has a simple open gable plan. Rough-cut pine shiplap, milled just down the road, warms the cathedral ceiling. Douglas fir beams (4-by-8s) break down the vaulted ceiling’s expanse. The flooring is engineered hickory. Browne sourced as many of his materials from Maine as possible.

If we did raise the ceiling, we could add a window up where the venting is now, and a cool wooden beam ...

I like the black cubby unit in the background with the lower unit as a desk-like surface. Could stack another on top of the taller unit for even more vertical storage.

Wood ceiling- maybe we put this on hold and do later in the master bedroom?
