For another 100 years
This CAD drawing shows the Connector Box and Box Beam design that I used for my living room and dining room ceilings. Some measurements have been provided simply as a guide, however this is not intended to be a shop drawing that you can copy directly to your own project.
Each project is different, and if you do something like this, it has to be for your specific home with consideration of original home design and construction. Above all, it must fit visually into the space and be soundly built so that it is able to last another 100 years.
This drawing was made after the much of the work was done and is only here for illustration purposes and hopefully to help and inspire my readers. You do not need to do a CAD drawing for a project like this! Quarter inch grid paper works great!
