How to install a drop ceiling in your basement
I have a new friend who lives in the basement.
I have built a drop floor, so that I can get my laptop and other belongings in a nice and neat place.
We love the fact that it allows me to get my stuff out of my room without having to crawl through the basement floor.
But there’s one problem.
My basement floor is covered in metal caving.
It’s not very aesthetically pleasing, so I’ve decided to install it.
Here’s how to do it. 1.
Find a Drop Ceiling You need a solid foundation for your floor.
It needs to be sturdy enough to stand up to the weight of your belongings.
I recommend using plywood.
A plywood floor will give you the best strength, but it will also be a bit on the expensive side.
Install the Drop Ceil You will need to install the metal ceiling.
I did it myself, but you can find these DIY tutorials online.
I decided to use a drill press to drill a hole into the metal.
I also cut the metal sheet to the proper size.
The plywood I used had a 6-inch diameter.
I found that this was enough.
You can cut the sheet into the desired length.
For example, you can cut a sheet of 2 x 2 and 2 x 4.
Make sure you cut them at an angle to get the desired width.
You’ll need to measure the width of the sheet so that you have the correct thickness.
I cut mine at an 8-inch by 8-in cut.
You may want to measure it with a ruler to ensure you get the right width.
Cut the Sheet of Metal Sheet to length I drilled a hole in the metal using a 1/4-inch drill bit and a 1-inch socket wrench.
I used a drill bit to drill holes in the sheet to get a nice long, straight piece of metal.
If you’re drilling holes with a drill, you need to use your fingers to drill the metal into the holes.
If it’s a drill with a bit attachment, you’ll have to use some pliers to hold it in place.
Cut Out the Metal Cover You’ll have a piece of sheet metal to make the drop ceiling.
If your floor has a metal floor, you should use the metal to hold the metal in place, rather than the wood.
I’ve cut out the metal covering from a sheet and glued it to the metal cover.
Then, I used an acetone gun to coat the metal with acetone and paint it.
Then I taped it to a piece on the floor and mounted it on the ceiling.
Mount the Drop Cover on the Metal This part is really important, so it will make sure that the metal doesn’t move around.
I mounted the metal floor on the sheet metal cover with a 3-inch-diameter square hole.
It was about 8 inches long.
I made sure to drill it at an appropriate depth, to give the metal enough room to fit around the hole.
The metal sheet should fit snugly.
You don’t want to make any holes or gaps in the cover.
You also don’t need to mount it too high because it will come off.
Make the Drop Caving Board I glued two sheets together.
One sheet was made of 4-inch plywood, and the other was made out of 1-1/2-inch steel sheet.
I had to cut out all of the pieces that were too long, so the sheet was a bit longer.
Then glued the sheet together.
It took a couple of tries, but eventually I got it to fit.
Make a Drop Cavesite The floor will need some holes to put it down.
I drilled out a few of the small holes with an 8mm drill bit.
Then made a 2-inch hole with the drill.
I then drilled out the larger hole using the same method.
I taped a piece to the bottom of the drop floor to hold in place while I made the caving board.
Drill a Hole Into the Drop Floor I then used a 3/8-inch bit to make a 1 1/2″ hole.
I added the tape so the hole wouldn’t go too far.
I screwed the sheet onto the bottom and used some plumber’s tape to secure it. 9.
Mounting the Drop Plate The plate needs to go on the underside of the metal, so be sure to attach it to something solid.
The plate should go over the edge of the wall and into the corner of the space.
Install Drop Ceils and Cavesites I then installed a drop table.
This is very simple.
You just put the table on the metal and put a few screws in the right places.
You won’t need the table if you’re using a drop bed.
I attached a piece with a small screw in the center.
I glued the top and bottom
