here is a nice groin vault hung with 1/2

brisketbean's picture

We finally got to hang this nice groin vault that we framed last december, it is 19 feet off the floor, an oval shaped barrel 45 feet long, with 5 oval shaped cross vaults, it had a major axis of 104 3/4", a minor axis of 79" and was a lot of fun to hang. A middle aged fat man, one college boy and a 14 year old hung it in about three days.

Just a small request, do you have pictures of partway through?

It is a farm house near Happy Texas, around 8000 ft i think, it is a remodel, and i am the ceiling sub.

Excellent work. What type of corner bead will you use?

I will be trying the no-coat 325 on the groins on this ceiling, I havent used it before but they sent me a box to try out, and it looks like a great product to me.

Very nice. Is that a residence ? I wish more people could afford to build like that, makes the days more interesting.

Nice work. Challenging work like that is what keeps me in the trade.
