Photo by rmac1986


    A homeowner suspects the ceilings in their condo were lowered at some point and is wondering why. The brick row house was converted into condos and the ceilings in the closets are about eight inches higher than elsewhere in the unit. Is it worth trying to raise the rest of the ceilings? Would they have been lowered to reduce energy costs?

    Please chime in with your advice.
