Lightbulb Ceiling ideas

Hello all, I am new to the game and trying to get started on my conversion. I was wondering what people are doing for their ceilings. Anything you can give me for ideas or better yet pictures would be amazing! Also I am located in Michigan, I would assume it’s essential for me insulate as well.
Thanks in advanced for the help!

Welcome
It's more like the pictures are already here in somebody's build thread. You read threads and decide what type of ceiling you like from there.

So tell us about what you're working on or planning on. Do you have a us yet? Honestly we'd rather help you find a good bus. Either way, yes you'll want insulation. Even if you think you're tough and think you can get by without insulation, you'll change your mind after the first winter.
Have fun with your build.

Okay I will have to look for that thread and no bus yet have been shopping a little tho. Just planning at this point, trying to do the best I can do for cheap. Iím thinking for sure a bus withe the front engine though. I have been trying to work out the cost of everything to get this done. Would like to know how deep my pockets have to be before I dive into it this spring.
Thanks for the help!

You won't find a "ceiling thread with all the ideas" here. You will find it in the link I posted before this one.
