I am going too be using 3-1/2" x 3/4" prefinished oak flooring for the ceiling of a new porch. The rafters will be 16" oc. To minimize waste, rather than installing so that all the end joints are on the rafters I'm going to not worry about where the joints occur. If they are not over a rafter I will glue the end toungue and groove. No one is going tot be walking on the ceiling so I'm not worried about the strength of the joint.
Do you see any possible problems with this approach?
I've installed several hardwood floors using the same material. Is there anything I should pay particular attention to when installing this as a ceiling?
Thanks for any advice,
