Tom Silva and Jeff Sweenor start working on a coffered ceiling in the Westerly house living and dining rooms

SUBSCRIBE to This Old House:

The massive new beam that holds up the second floor at the Westerly house is going to be disguised as a coffer in the ceiling of the first floor living space. Tom Silva helps Jeff Sweenor measure out where the other coffers will go, based on the beam and the finished profiles of the coffers. They transfer the measurements from a storypole and start to cut boards to install on the ceiling.
