In the Spring I plan on finishing my porch ceiling with tongue & groove
cedar. Would it be a good idea to get the wood now and let it "cure" in my
basement so there's less shrinkage after it's up? The basement is humidity
Yes, the cedar planks may be overkill for a porch ceiling. I think it would
look beautiful, especially in the evening with some low level lighting
reflecting off the finish. Regardless of what I put up there, I also have
to decide if I should try to insulate in some way. I'm going to attach the
wood to the roof rafters for a sloped ceiling. I know I need air
circulation to preserve the roof but there's always a chance that I'll close
in the porch someday and will want to heat it.
