Studio Build Update: Ceiling Framing

One of the more challenging parts of our studio build was determining a way to keep the ceiling decoupled from the larger building structure.  Based on the size of the rooms, the joist spans would have required a pretty heavy duty piece of wood to meet load requirements - not to mention that it would have brought the ceiling to a much lower level.

That said we ended up hanging our double layer drywall ceiling using isolation hangers and a metal ceiling grid.  In addition to the isolation hangers, resilmount isolation clips were used to stabilize the walls to the ceiling while keeping the internal walls and ceiling isolated from the larger structure (unfortunately I didn't snag a picture of that before the drywall went up).
