Ceilings Inside and Out
Warming up the interior with real wood paneling from UFP-Edge
Now comes the fun part: adding the rustic shiplap paneling from UFP-Edge, a 1x6 in grey for the great-room ceiling, and a rustic red for the east porch ceiling outside. Since it comes in 12-foot lengths, Owens Construction owner and contractor Bill Owens used trim to create faux beams at the joints.
Factory finished with a low-VOC stain on all six surfaces, the product comes ready to install. “It went up easy,” says Owens. “It’s very user friendly; I’m impressed with it. And it transforms the look of any space to which it's added."
Here, he used it for the great room and east porch ceilings, but also those of the stacked master suites on the first and second floors and as an accent wall (in green) in another bedroom.
