Hello, I have a 1966 spacemaster, I live in Oregon - a lot of rain and not much snow, but the ceiling tiles are all warped in many rooms and are not able to be replaced - I can't find any and the slat boards are warped (what the tiles are attached to).
I would like to:
1. Remove the ceiling tiles
2. Re-inforce the 1x2 joyces (rafters) wtih 2x4
3. Install 1/2 inch drywall - and texture
This is a double wide with a beam in the middle with lots of support.
The exterior walls are not 2x4. They are smaller - not sure what
Do you think this is OK?
Thank you
