NY Good Questions: Type of Insulation For the Ceiling?

Dear AT,

Advice is sorely needed.

We bought a warehouse condo and are in the process of renovating.

On the final approval of our plans the condo board says we MUST use 2 inches of insulation on the ceiling and cover the gorgeous raw wood that we love so much.

This is a total curveball and makes us very sad.

What should we use?...

Drywall seems so boring and this definitely wasn't in the budget. any thoughts on a material for a ceiling in a loft?

Everything we come up with seems so surburbian or gimmicky!

Thanks! Carla
