What do you think of a corrugated metal ceiling?

The careful design avoids uncomfortably tight spaces. You don’t bump your elbows against the walls and the scale doesn’t make you feel you are too big in a small space.” – Tiny House Blog

I’ve seen this done a few times, but this one is especially nice. See more of this Floating Guest House.

    Metal ceilings look great – or at least they do if they are done properly. However, any hard surface reflects sound – and the harder the surface the better it reflects the sound. I would be concerned that the amount of background noise will be higher, and do something to moderate it, like soft furniture, toss rug, or even a tapestry.

    like the house design very much. the ceiling not so much. would condensation form and drip? and the one “arm” of the ladder is so long I;d walk into and get punched in the stomach. other tan that the house is fine.

    Is there insulation between the metal? I could see this as a hot bed under the bright sun. It looks gorgeous though!

    I like the aesthetics of it, but does it effect the heating and cooling? How is the sound in there?

    I think it would be hot in the summer, cold in the winter, dripping with condensation, loud in a rainstorm, and a pain to clean.
    It does add visual interest, though.
    Maybe it’s the angle of the photos, but it appears that one would whack one’s head on it when using the ladder?

    I would be worried about condensation with so much exposed metal inside , I speak from a Builders perspective .
    but it looks fine .

    We are currently doing a metal roof for a project. We are using it to cover up a previously crappy drywall job in an existing attic without having to tear down all the dry wall. Looks great so far!
