Ceiling is off 1 1/2"
We gutted our dining room hoping to get working electrical outlets and new lighting installed, but as all you DIYers know nothing ever goes as planned! The ceiling and walls are so off that we feel sheetrock will fail/crack. Right now our plan is to sister 2x8's to the existing ceiling joists and do the same with 2x4's onto the walls to square everything up. It is going to add weeks onto the project and of course more money. Are there any other options? What has been some of your experiences in these situations?
