Apologies for going way back in your build ...
[quote=jamis;14039914]Yet another busy weekend...
I finished the soffits in the theater (just need to finish the one in the kitchenette) and about half of the ceiling. The rest of the ceiling in the theater will be 1.5" lower than the front of the theater due to pipes and other obstacles .
I have a smiliar situation to your ceiling where I need to furr down the height by 2x3 for a portion and then a little lower for the back of the room due to pipes. How did you frame or furr down the back half of your room. Look at the pics it looks like you blocked the joists then ran the 2x3, is that correct?
I have been considering running two layers of 2 x 3's perpendicular to each other, but looking for alternatives.
Just as an FYI, I pulled the quote from post 51.
