Beam me up, Scotty!

Two weeks and counting until the living room ceiling comes down. We will be dropping the ceiling to reveal the beams and the peak of the roof line. Hopefully it will end up looking something like this.

We're going to seal off the living room, kitchen, and den from the rest of the house. Put everything in them into storage and go to it.
