I am having trouble finding the ceiling joists to hang something in my children's room. In the room next door they are exposed and are at approx. 16 inch centers. I measured over to where they should be and drilled a small pilot hole, but can't find it. I ended up drilling about 24 inches of pilot holes and still no luck.
I randomly found one on the other side of the room, so I know they're there. The ones that are exposed run east/west, so is they should run east/west in the next room????
