Dining Room Ceiling Project Part 3 - Patching

It's late (3:20am), but this should be a relatively quick post to write.

With the old tongue-and-groove removed from the chimney cabinet, I was able to start patching all the damaged/rotten boards in the ceiling. This was the first of the two long centre boards:

PC220193

Second board:

PC220196

PC220197

Staggered joints in the middle.

PC220198

Some of the short boards were attached with this scrap piece of wood which was installed with screws from above. The screws were installed using a small hand-held ratcheting screw driver.

PC220201

First two boards. Screwed from above, and nailed at the edge of the wall. A small clamp (seen later) helped keep pieces in place while driving the screws.

PC220203

3rd and 4th boards.

PC220204

The last few were nailed to the floor joist.

PC230215

I used the same system near the bath drain and heating duct corner.

PC230216

PC230217

More in a few days!
