This is a vaulted ceiling I built for a client, with no trim moulding so each of the compound mitre joints would show four crisp lines. The final four 16 ft. Pieces were scribed to the wall.

Out of the thirty-two pieces of Fir, twenty-two of them were one single piece.
The room itself was off-square by 1 ½” and the ceilings were off pitch.
This just made the job a bit more challenging.

The pictures give more detail.

Whoah! My head is spinning about how you dealt with the roof being off pitch – walls out of square is normal….
The pictures never do justice to the amount of work involved in something like this.
Nice job!

Wow! I appreciate what it takes to do something like this and fit the recessed lights too. Looks fantastic.
