Try to find 2 joists close together then measure the distance between them this will probably be 400 to 600 ish.... Then you can measure that distance to find the next joist and so on.......if you find the joist at each side of the room you can then strike a line across the ceiling so you have got something to work to.....good luck

I have took out an alcove in one bedroom and give the space to another bedroom so to get the corner flush I will have put a board on to take the gap if you know what I mean
