We have an unfinished basement and would like to remodel it. The first headache being deciding on how to drop the ceiling. Some of the heating ducts are low, and to drop the ceiling under it would have the ceiling too low. My idea is to drop the celing and to cut holes in the tiles for the ductwork....my cheap solution to the problem. Has anyone else conquered this problem?!?! My house is 65 years old and I don't want to redo the ductwork...we've already done so much on the other levels...I just want a basement that can be used as a rec room. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Could you please e mail me any suggestions, because I check my mail more than surf. Thank you!!!
