OK - I need some experts to help out here. (or non-experts with ideas) I am doing a remodel on a kitchen. Its an older house and wasn't built level or has shifted many years ago. The main beam in the basement runs side to side and is about 1.5" lower than the foundation wall where the joists sit. All doors close, no cracks in plaster. It was like they built it this way. Sooo - in doing the kitchen. I couldn't jack the beam w/o needing to rework the entire rest of the house. I couldn't shim down the ceiling w/o doing demo in the adjacent dining room. Here I am at the finishing stages, dealing with the slope. Floor and ceiling are parallel. The base cabs are shimmed so they are level, the upper cabs are level. The design calls for a built up crown above the cabs, tight to the ceiling. The crown is two pieces. one vertical, directly above the door and then my angled piece attached to the vertical and to the ceiling. Make sense? I have an 8' run of uppers and the gap between the cabs and the ceiling changes 1.25" over 8'. My initial thought was to run the vertical board straight to the cab and the angled board tight to the ceiling. That looks like hell. I thought it wouldn't be too noticeable but it is. If I bring down the angled piece to be straight with the cabs I have a huge gap between the crown and the ceiling. That's where I left things. I need some advice. - Do I fill and caulk the gap? how the heck would I caulk it? - Do I fabricate a piece of tapered trim to fit in there and paint it to match the cabs? Paint to match the ceiling? - Do I make crown tight to ceiling and live with my enlarging crown? (looks bad but how I thought originally I would do it.) Thanks all!
