Lifting the Basement Ceiling with Existing Ductwork

I had immense plans for our up-to-date house, especially in the basement.

I felt like I’d hit the gold mine when I landed this lake house because it had something that was super costly to me, however not only was there a basement, but it was finished.

The finished basement was in great condition as well as there was so much space for me to work with. However, there was one thing that I wanted to change. The ceiling was the generic, rectangle tiles that were a cork material. Although they were in fantastic condition like everything else, I didn’t like how low they were. I really wanted to remove the ceiling tiles really as well as add drywall to lift the ceiling. I hired a contractor to supply me a free bid as well as it was within the price range that I was hoping for. She offered me several possibilities though… Since there was Heating as well as Air Conditioning air duct on one side, I could lift the ceiling like I wanted, but there would be a drywall box surrounding the air duct. This was fairly normal for some households as well as it was the most affordable option. My seventh option was to transport the Heating as well as Air Conditioning air duct to keep the ceiling completely flush. This was the most costly option because it required an Heating as well as Air Conditioning serviceman to come in as well as transport the existing air duct. Ultimately, I ended up selecting the first option because a drywall box around the air duct didn’t bother me. It wouldn’t be in the way as well as I was ecstatic that the ceiling would at least be lifted.
