Wait.  What?   You hit the lottery or something with lumber prices where they are?   :Praise:

 A million bucks, payable in the sum of $1.00 a year for a million years.


Fortunately the wall that needs to be built out is only 10'. Buying a 2x8 and ripping it in half is cheaper than buying two 2x4's. The 4 ceiling joist I'll need were salvaged from the wall that I removed between the kitchen & porch. The studs are the same as the joist and measure 1 3/4" x 3 3/4". We removed one layer of cement board and 3 layers of plaster from the kitchen ceiling and there was no sag so I figure these should hold a layer 5/8" green board.

 Underlayment, I've seen as high as 21.00 a sheet, is going to hurt.
