Progress,  page 98
I decided I simply didn't want to hassle with putting heavy sheets drywall up on the ceiling (even
with the use of a panel lifter), and taping and sanding overhead seemed even less appealing, so
we elected to install tongue and groove pine throughout the house.  It is time consuming, but it
wasn't that much more expensive than drywall and it's much easier to install.  My wife sealed,
stained (golden pecan to approximately match the hickory), and finished (two coats of wipe-on
polyurethane) each board ahead of time, and then I used a pneumatic brad nailer to put them up.  
This is the main entry hallway.
This is the kitchen area.
And this is the ceiling of the master bedroom.
