Wood Ceiling

I'm considering a wood ceiling for my basement. So far (3 months) there have been no water leakage issues.

Is this a good idea ? By wood ceiling, I mean using regular pine tongue/groove flooring on the ceiling. The area that I'm planning on covering has just some electrical wires and maybe some HVAC tubing (not ducts). The other rooms have all the plumbing. The ceilings are also all insulated with fiberglass bats.

I think that it would look very good. Just need to be sure you provide access to any electrical junction boxes or anything that might require maintenance or adjustments.

I just put in 1000sq/ft of t&g cedar in my basement ceiling and I love it. The nice part is if you ever need to repair anything above it you can just cut out an area and replace it without hardly even noticing it.

Has the extra humidity in the basement affected the wood ?

Has not effected it at all. It has been up for over a year. Cedar is very good in this application anyway.
