Exposing Ceiling Beams?


I just bought a 1964 condo on the top floor. I'm a big fan of the industrial style look, so I was thinking I could remove the drywall/insulation from the kitchen ceiling to expose the beams underneeth. I'd paint them white and cover the wires with metal pipes and add track lighting.

Is this possible? I'm on the top floor, and the roof is aluminum. Would removing the sheet rock make the place really hot during the summer/cold in winter? Is it dangerous for a novice?

Thanks for any info. Sorry if I sound really stupid about the stuff, just wanting to make the place more modern (green, shag carpet is going too).

I wouldn't do it on the top floor. Insulation being the biggest drawback.
