I have a nice attic space I want to refinish about 14’ x 12’ which is under the pitched roof, i.e. an A-Frame type space. A couple of questions. The roof is clay tile. I have inuslated between the rafters and am now contemplating what to use to finish the ceiling. I’m lookin at tongue and groove pine, either eastern knotty white or yellow. I can get lengths up to 14’ so won’t have seams. Any recommendations on what pine to use or suggestions for other materials?
I’m also unclear on whether I should sheeth first or nail the tongue and groove slats into the rafters. I’ve heard that clay tiles roofs should breathe, but have I already messed that up with insulation. On the other hand, I hate to have no insulation since the space needs to be heated and cooled for habitation.
Advice appreciated and thanking you for it.
