My home addition has an steel I-Beam running down the center of the ceiling and I plan on covering with a wood "box" so that it looks like a wooden beam. I've seen a home improvement show (not sure which) that had a company installing a faux ceiling beam system. Does anyone know of a company that does this or have an idea how I could build one myself?

Hi Carl, this is really fairly simple. First install some wood blocks to the I-beam every couple of feet, the blocks need to be flush with the bottom of the beam or can protrude a little bit. Second make your box (|_|) so that it will slip over the wood blocks, raise to ceiling and attach to the blocks with either nails or screws (personally I'd use screws). Done! Hope this helps, good luck!

I have been looking myself, and have found the following;

There are several. By far the most helpful, and useful site is that of *****.com. Try them. :) Hopefully, you're not in Canada!!
