I wanted to rip out the ceilings in my master bedroom. I love the look of exposed beam ceilings and would like to create it here. My roof has quite a nice pitch and I can see the beams on the outside of the house. Is this just a dream or is there a beautiful ceiling above the drywall? Any problems you can foresee with electrical, finishing, or other?

It's very unlikely that there's a "beautiful ceiling" above the drywall. Have you tried looking in the attic?

Nobody can really answer your questions without seeing it. For example, would electrical and/or HVAC have to be reworked, and if so, how much rework?
Many contractors will give free estimates.
