Hi M Hardin, what you're describing is called truss uplift and
it is quite normal/common. The March issue of Popular Mechanics
has an article (Journal section) describing this and what steps
need to be taken. You might want to go out and buy this issue
so that you have a "hands on" reference. However, to sum up the
article what you need to do is install crown moulding nailing
into the ceiling and not into the wall. This will allow the
moulding to slide up/down with the temperature changes and hides
the gaps. Hope this helps, and good luck!
