Suspended Ceiling

I'm putting up a suspended ceiling in a newly finished basement. There is a steel beam about 1 foot lower than the ceiling running the length of the room. I need some ideas on how to cover (disguise) the beam. I have thought of framing it in with sheet rock, but that is more work than I am willing to do. Any suggestions?

Hi Torr, A suggestion would be to cover the beam with a three sided wood box. You could secure it to the floor rafters with plumbers tape or metal ties used for framing they make many different forms. The type of wood could be as diverese as oak for a classic look to rough sawen for a rustic look. Good Luck Woodbutcher

Here is a link to some possibilities

In any case you need to build a soffit around the beam.
