I had a contractor install a Tongue and Groove pine ceiling in my new construction home. He face nailed the planks rather than nailed it in the tongue.

My contractor says face nailing is the best method

What is the best method for instaling this ceiling in a vaulted ceiling in a Great room ?

Please advise.

I had a contractor install a tongue and groove pine ceiling in a new construction beachfront house. The wood sat in the house without heat or air installed/running. Was then installed and stained. The hvac system has been running about 1 month now. The humidity is about 54% in the house. The wood is now shrinking and you can see the cracks. Will this expand back? If not, what would be the solution be to resolve the issue?
