Hello all. I am in the process of pretty much redoing our whole house since we found lots of rot after removing an extension. My den has a cathedral ceiling constructed of 2x6's and i want to put in recessed lights but they don't seem to fit since the beams have shrunk some. My plan was to fur the ceiling with 2x4's running perpenticular to the 2x6 rafters. This will give me an extra 1.5" of headroom for the recessed lights and I'll reinsulate with R19.
Is this the best way or sould I rip a 2x4 and attach them to the bottom of the 2x6?
Just to clarify, there are no soffits in this roof as it's attached to the back wall of the upstairs and the facia is attached to the sheathing. I don't understand why they didn't build my style house with soffits.
Thanks in advance.
