Hi all, I've done many a DIY home projects and I'm ready to finish my basement now. When I see pictures of framing and TV shows where the framing is exposed, frequently the ceilings have extra wood strapping running horizantally opposed to the direction of the upper joists.
I don't understand why they do this. Wouldn't it just be easier to attach the ceiling drywall directly to the floor joist on the floor above?
