gotta agree oasis, i've never managed to overboard, even a smallish ceiling, in less than 2 or 3 hours.

How do you guys find the joists. I bought one of the tools that meant to find them that beeps when you run it over the ceiling but find it just beeps when it wants to.
I now just bang a few holes in the ceiling with a hammer now.

Finding these is a nightmare, so i always put the first board up in this area to cover the lot, using the nearest joist's for more support. Any body else noticed this ?.
