    Do you mean the aluminium strips with the square sheets sitting in them or something more up market.

    This is LOS, not many builders work to a plan

    Ok here is a picture of the c line stuff, this is aluminum and you wop the sheets of plaster board onto them, nice quick and easy, and about 250baht per meter.

    We used this stuff on the walls in the restaurant. I think its main role is as suspended cieling frame. Galvanized steel. The shop also sold the screw thread rods for suspending and other relevent fittings. If I remember right it was cheap at around 250 baht per pack, 10 2.4m lengths per pack C channel and a bit cheaper for the less rigid U channel.

    We covered it with accoustic board sheets 60cm x 60cm and they were imported from the states at 60B per sheet retail. Plain sheets were cheeper and fancy designs were up to 120B per sheet I think.

    We've got a crappy suspended ceiling. I'd never have one again, not living out in the sticks anyway. You would'nt belive the ammount of things living in it

    At least they hide the crappy wiring, horrible masonry and dodgy roofing (until it rains).

    I cringe every time I have to go up there. And, that's before I start worrying about the critters that might be living above.

    Anyway once you got all your framework up now is the time to stick up your plaster board, this is just screwed onto the framework thru the plaster board, as you can see in this picture they never bother staggering the sheets for some reason.

    Next we have another stepped design just before they get the chance to finish putting the plaster board up.

    Next up I noticed the plasterers have been in.






    Having the boards not staggered must make it a right pig of a job to plaster, at least when they are staggered you have one nice straight run to tidy up your 2 curves.

    Na they don't do it topless if thats what you are thinking, but we could come to some sort of arrangement but it would cost more than your normal plastering charges

    The people that fitted the wooden furniture finished the cielings, there is a few million bahts worth of furniture made for the place, ie 4 bedrooms all fitted out, all bathrooms fully fitted out with made to measure furnishings, I shall post some pics of the kitchen later on just to give you an idea of the amount of money that has been spent on this place.

    People keep going on about how shite the standard of work is in Thailand but if your pictures aren't lying they show that a very high standard is achievable.

    In the US 'suspended ceiling' would mean a ceiling made from tiles that are held in place by steel supports (much like you would see in a commercial store like Big C, Tesco, etc). Here we call what's in the thread 'raised' or 'vaulted' ceilings.

    If it were me I'd lose the wood. It makes the area seem too dark IMHO.

    Don't Thai plasterers use stilts instead of saw horses (that have to be moved around)?

    sorry but in the us that would be called an acoustic ceiling, a sheetrock ceiling is known as a drop ceiling,people also call an acoustic ceiling an armstrong ceiling(thats the brand name), a vaulted ceiling is what you would find in a church.
