HI. We are building and have put in 32c ceiling height. Can anyone tell me how high this is in cm? We were at the house and we also noticed that they seem to have 'painted' the concrete on the ceiling on the ground floor for some bits, which we assume is the ceiling, and then in another section put like a gap between the concrete and ceiling, ie put ceiling panels in on these metal brackets. The odd bit to us is that the passage is full height, but then as you walk into the dining its about 10cm lower. Is this right? Any help would be great.

Depending upon the type of roof construction - around 2700mm.
As for the dropped ceiling area maybe some pictures may help.

Yes we are in WA. The aircon is coming out of a bulkhead in the kitchen so its not for that, plus it would not be enough space for any ducting or plumbing. There is a section under the 2nd floor slab and another part which has roof. Almost seems like they did the bit under the roof too low so just kept going! Is just odd. We will raise with the builder and see what they say.

Thank you all for the help. Yes I want to get a picture but our camera broke last week so its getting fixed. Will see if I can get one and put up here. How do you show the picture? Meeting the builder to day so I will see what they say.

We spoke to the builder and they said it was normal to have a space under the slab if the ceiling was going under a mixture of roof timber and concrete. It is only a small space so we have decided it must be ok. Thank you for the help.

Thanks for this, good to know. Sounds expensive given the room is 6 × 4 m , I'll get a builder in for a quote, certainly doesn't sound like a DIY. Thanks again!

Many display homes I looked at had 2700mm ceilings with 2040mm internal doors. The space above the doors didn’t seem disproportionately high. I would use 2340mm doors…
