My ground floor has a ceiling.

And my second floor has a floor.

I was very nervous about how the concrete ceiling would look but it turned out great. I’m thrilled. The wood pattern looks great. And the contractor actually sawed off the sides of the concrete slabs in order to get a thin joint! And I didn’t even ask him to do it! I have such a great contractor! You can barely see the joints now.

That’s going to be the actual ceiling. I’m not going to do anything to it. I’ll paint the steel beams, but not the ceiling itself.
