Draw a scale rendering of the room where you are hanging wood ceiling tiles. Plan location of the timber main runners so as to be 25 inches on center from each other as they run perpendicular to the beams. To figure this, measure the width of the room in inches and divide by 25. This shows the full number of panels you can place. Divide leftover 2 because you want smaller roof panels to go on either side of the room to give the roof a balanced look.
