Consult the services of a local structural engineer with experience in wood frame construction. It would be irresponsible to answer this question without detailed knowledge of the work proposed, local building codes or by anyone other than an engineer.

A coombe ceiling is one that slopes at an angle between a vertical room wall and the horizontal ceiling above. Usually found in attics, top floors or penthouses.

They get on a vertical floor-to-ceiling pole and dance sensually and gracefully.

A "load-bearing" wall is typically defined as a wall supporting any vertical load in addition to its own weight. A shear wall transfers lateral loads from a roof, ceiling or floor diaphragm to a foundation or other element. Although a shear wall might not carry gravity loads from roof or floor forces, it can still be considered load-bearing as the lateral forces induce a rotational, or overturning moment in-plane with the wall, which results in vertical reactions at the boundaries of the wall. These forces are in addition to the shear, or sliding forces induced in the wall. {Building plans examiner response}

Depends on the area above the ceiling joists. Is it a live load (living space) or dead load (just the joists with maybe an attic above)? Also, the length of the ceiling joists from the last bearing point is a factor. How much weight is bearing on the beam is the critical issue.

The correct term is false ceiling. Fall ceiling isn't correct.

When the walls are true and vertical - they at least stand a chance!!

Vertical lines are lines that are drawn / made perpendicular to the horizon. In other words, they go "ceiling to floor", not "wall to wall" or "corner to corner."

Vertical welding is referring to the position a weldment joint. The welding torch will travel parallel to the pull of gravity (specified either up or down.) Easier way to understand this is if your wall was metal you are welding, you weld from floor to ceiling, or ceiling to floor.

Ceiling Fan rotates about a vertical axis. Top rotates about its own axis

All exterior walls in a home are load bearing. The exterior walls on the gable end of your house do not bear much load, but the walls that the hip of the roof bear on carry your roof and ceiling joints. Interior walls are another story. Usually in a smaller one story home there is a wall that runs the midspan of the house that is load bearing for your roof and ceiling joints.

it depends what your fire codes read. check with your local bldg inspector or code enforcement office. some municipalities wont allow it if theres no fire barrier.if there are no code violations, as long as your top plate is secure, then there shouldn't be a problem.

One hangs from the ceiling, the other sits on the table.

Yes. Back-to-back 45's on the vertical pipe between the trap and the shower strainer will work fine.

Non-load-bearing walls support only themselves; they are interior partition walls. They have a single top plate. While non-load-bearing walls might run perpendicular to floor and ceiling joists, they will not be aligned above support beams. As the name implies, load-bearing walls carry the structural weight of your home. Load-bearing walls in platform-frame homes will have double top plates. That is, two layers of framing lumber. Note: all exterior walls are load bearing; I got this from another site.

because u don't know how to be in the bed together you be on the roof and your mum on the ceiling

One is on the ceiling and the other is on the tabke (or whrre ever you decide to put it.

Most CO alarms are designed to be placed the same way as smoke alarms: within about a foot of the ceiling on a vertical wall or directly on the ceiling at least a foot from the wall. CO is slightly buoyant in air, so it mixes with a tendency to rise and accumulate in a ceiling layer.

Ceiling fans use between .5 - .9 amps to operate, depending on the make and model.

Possible the affiliation between the blue of the sky and the blue of the ceiling.

It differs between planes. They each have a certain ceiling (max height) and when you find out what airplane your on, you can find out the ceiling

Leonardo painted no ceiling. Michelangelo did. It was the Sistine Chapel and Michelangelo painted it between 1508 and 1512.
