tongue and groove pine on ceiling
 
Is it possible to install t and g pine on ceiling, because I have seen somewhere that it could be a problem for the fire's code?

What are the rules about it?

Thanks

To be on the safe side you could drywall first and then cover it with pine. If the rafter are a 24" on center, 5/8 drywall would be required.

It is a matter of thickness of the wood and the room it will be in. I would check with the city inspectors, but they may refer you to an engineer.

No, it is 3/4" thick wood. The only drywall we have is inside closets and the basement stair well.

Some structures are built with material that have a high fire rating and don't need to be protected with drywall but that will be the exception not the rule.
Blue Jay; What is the stucture above the pine ceiling, size of rafters and type and thickness of sheeting?
Fredartic; Same question.

Keep in mind that codes change and anything done today should meet todays codes.

This is a mobile home built in 1983. I join some pictures of the structure but this is not where is the cathedral ceiling; this is where there were ice dams the winter before last year. The depth of the cathedral ceiling is 7 inches and half. I don't know if there are 2 x 8 or another design. The roof is metal roof. The rafters are 24 inches. We wanted to put t and g pine thinner than 0,5 inch.

By the way, how should I patch the hole (8 x 8) in the wood panel of the roof?

Regular trusses with 10" of fiberglass, roof sheeting is 5/8 then ice and water barrier then shingles. My avitar is the home in question. By the way this was a kit from Lincoln Log in NY, self built to their blueprints.
