    Okay…have i gone mad, maybe…and any new girls tuning in…yes, this is still crossdresser heaven!!!….do not adjust your set!!!

    If you are sitting at home on cdh, look up!!!…why are our ceilings so high…. I’m 5’8″…why is my ceiling 9 feet high…..i understand the door is 6’6″…but thats big enough….heat rises and i am paying to heat 3′ above my head???…for frickin spiders…

    Change a bulb or clean cobwebs i need steps…

    Is it just England or are you American/ Canadian girls paying to keep spiders in the manner they are used to…( Its okay Krista, i know you live in an igloo..curved ceiling…nice…haha)

    Now, if all that space above my head could be removed, and put on the side of my flat….. more wardrobes!!!

      Ceiling height here varies by room, from about 7’8” to 16’. On hot days the interior heat rises into the vertical alcove and leaves the depths relatively cool.
      Local spiders include venomous black widows who lie low (I think) instead of spinning webs. A large blister on my foot told me that I had discovered one the hard way in my drab shoe. Ms. Spider treated me like lunch. But better a spider than a sidewinder rattlesnake, another local denizen.

      There’s an obvious reason, Grace:  you’re 5′ 8″… which just proves that you didn’t eat your broccoli when you were a girl!  If you’d have had a decent (vegetarian) diet you would have been 6′ 4″ – like the better and far more sassy amongst us…  By the way; I still agree with the general push of your question:  I grew up in a house where the stairwell (open to the living room) had a ceiling about 20′ from the floor, so meaning that any meaningful heating was just about impossible… plus the revolting, repulsive, disgusting spiders had plenty of room to plot the destruction of civilised society… (O.K:  they may not have actually been doing that, but I loathe them so much that I’ll accuse them of anything……)  All in all:  put your highest heels on and things won’t seem so bad!  (Not a bad bit of advice for all of society in general, surely?)  Inga XOXOXO

      Grace! You never fail to amuse (bouche)!

      In Japan all the ceilings are lower ‘cos the people are shorter! Went to a department store in Singapore and the ceilings there were for the Japanese shoppers to feel more comfortable whereas I just felt like a giant! Here in NZ we have a standard 2.4 metre stud in newer houses as the plasterboard are of a set size 2.4 x 1.2m.

      There… ‘short’ and sharp! ❤️ Polly

      I’m good with 10′ ceilings but ours slopes up to the second floor.  The gas fireplace is under the short end which mean most heat goes straight up along the ceiling and to the upstairs.  I added a fan to mount under the mantle and we have a ceiling fan but it is still a waste.  And the extra room(s) or wardrobes we could have in that space would be great.

      Now I don’t worry about any cobwebs 18-20′ up in the corners because I just can’t see them. But occasionally the big ladder comes in to clean the ceiling fan and I’ll get it all.

      It’s mostly architecture regulations. Doors have to be a certain height, and ceilings must be at least 6 inches higher than the top of the door frame from what I remember. I’m 6 ft even, but with a 7.25 ft wingspan, I can touch the ceiling in most houses.

      Are ceilings the new panties?

      Are spiders the new tucking?

      Judging by the number of responses it appears that everyone is bored with panties and would rather talk about spiders….. and their ceilings! What next, fridges instead of bra’s? Lol. “what do you keep in your fridge?”   Makes a change from breast forms! …… and nipples.

      (Damn … scrapped that review of exotic panties…. off to research spider varieties instead.)

        Could we have less spider related activity please, they give me the creeps – too many legs and they will turn up in the most unexpected places. Recently there was a FB post from Australia of a pair of ear defenders with a huge Huntsman spider curled up inside one earpiece, the wearer only realised it was there when it started tickling his ear. Now I wear ear defenders in my day job and we have Australian wildlife turning up here so this has traumatised me considerably.

        So lets talk about plumbing or root canal work or something else – but no more spiders please!

        I’m shocked!

        Such a calumny!

        The very suggestion that we might be bored with panties cuts to the heart. I merely digress occasionally in the interests of diversity. I can see I need to correct things and make amends so my next post will be about sex. Let’s see if we can wake up the moderators.

          Don’t worry Galad sorry !  LisaT,   (isn’t she gorgeous though!)   I am sure we will hearing from the Pantygirls  quite soon. …..  maybe after Grace’s windows or furniture. Ask her about her chandelier incident.

      For many years we had a large garden spider, or a series of large spiders, who came indoors to escape the cold in winter. They eschewed the vast plains of the ceiling but rather enjoyed a particularly hairy rug in front of the lounge fire. He, I’m sure it was male, would sit there and rocking back and forth rubbing his belly against the nylon pile. The children were told that his name was Fred and he was adopted by the family. Fred of course had his own dark spider place. A corner of the room behind the television where cables and lack of access allowed a vast accumulation of dust and web, perfect for his winter quarters. Forty years later grandchildren still refer to any large spider in the house as Fred and give him free reign to wander and go about his business catching any mites or flies that might have the temerity to invade our space.

      There is however one space that is beyond the purview of spiders in our realm. The bath! Any arachnid invading this hallowed space is immediately caught and evicted out into the cold. The bath is a special place with only two purposes. The first is a personal sanctuary of peace and tranquility. Hot, scented and silky the filled bath relaxes tired muscles and soothes the troubled soul. It’s contentious I know but I do enjoy a good book and a glass of wine in the bath. With book and wine there is no need to think or plan, even time is self limiting, as fingers start to wrinkle it’s time to get out and dress. A delight I’ve no need to expand on to the girls on this site. The second purpose of a bath is as a quiet calm place to share with that special person in your life. The soothing calm creates a bubble away from the turmoil of life ideal to talk and plan, discuss the issues in life and resolve the little knots and kinks in the body of your partnership. It is truly magic. I cannot remember a single angry, defensive or aggressive word ever passing within the sanctuary but it is the place of hopes, dreams, desires and feelings openly shared to be nurtured.

      The place I live has high vaulted ceilings – about 18′ at the peak.  We don’t bother with the spiders….too much trouble getting rid of them.  Birds are a different story.  They get in sometimes when we leave the patio door open.  Squeaky The Cat goes berserk whenever it happens.  It’s total chaos.  The bird being terrorized by Squeaky.  2 humans trying to catch Squeaky and coax the bird out the open door.  Bird poop everywhere.  Yes, terrified birds poop a lot.  Cleaning it off furniture really sucks.

      Mostly 8 foot ceilings. The entry hall has a 17 for ceiling. Ask me how I know…ok, thanks I’ll tell you! I just spent several hours over three days on top of a 12 foot Scaffold changing out the original light with a chandelier we bought when we bought the house…8 years ago. Then once that was up, now we can see in there… oh look, we need to repaint the whole entry hall with a new color scheme! I had to evict every single spider in there to repaint, poor dears. And at this time of year, too. Well, did put in LED lights so hopefully won’t have to change the bulbs for at least a few years. Now I hurt in places I didn’t know I had! I was thinking about posting about this escapade, and you gave me the perfect thread all ready made, thanks Grace! By the way, six inch platform wedge heels make great additions for reaching up whilst painting!

      Bridgette…clearly I’ve found the rum

      Haha…Grace, currently mine are 8′ on their best day.  I used to live in an older house that had the 12′ ceilings.  Why a high ceiling…before air conditioning was common or even available the idea was to give the hot air a place to rise to in the summer “stack effect”.

      Hey Grace.
      I have three houses. I have a trailer home at the lake with 8 foot ceilings. The house that I am at most of the time was built in the 80’s and it has eight foot ceilings. I built the shop and it has 10 foot ceilings. The house that my wife and kids stay at during school was built in the 30’s. It has 9 foot ceilings upstairs but the basement only has 7 foot ceilings.
      I don’t really mind the spiders if they don’t bite me. They keep the little flying things down. If one happens to bite me I am allergic and kill them all. Probably only bite me when I dust and destroy their home.  I don’t dust like I should. The little sugar ants that try to invade don’t get the same treatment. I hit them with a homemade spray and they have not been back. It is going on three years now with one spray and they have never been back.
      Take your medicine and report later 😘

      ❤️
      Octavia.

      Hi Grace ,

      we built a house here in the states in Ky about a year and  a half ago. its a ranch with an open floor plan similar to our old house that had a high vaulted ceiling.About 11 ft at the peak.

      In this new house we determined no vaults but to make it feel open we would have to put in 9 ft ceilings.

      I believe the standard is 8 ft in most new homes .

       

      so I guess we are heating the freakin spiders too.LOL

       

      Hugs Patty

      Hi Grace as here in the states some of us would love to have the 9 FT ceilings as this 8 FT is a little close to just bumping my head with heels on .. Then the spiders mostly stay outside during the summers but they like the warmth of heaters in winter and hang around the windows looking out for the snow to leave so they can go out and play  some more he he ..  And the Spiders if you give them a little taste of JD they make some real pretty web pictures kind of doodleing around the windoes he he a drunk spider ha ha and dont have a tissey Miss Grace it only takes a pin size drop to watch the fun he he ..

      I am in America. Where I live is an older home, maybe about 100 years. It was originally a single family, 2 story, 3 bedroom house that was split into an up and down duplex. During the remodel they lowered the ceiling from 10 feet to 8 with a suspended drop ceiling. That means all my spiders have their own home, out of sight. I had to pop a ceiling tile out to change the smoke detector, it was not a pretty sight.

      The other interesting part of the remodel was the bathroom (water closet for those of you in other lands). The upstairs portion of the house had the full bathroom with only a toilet downstairs. Instead of expanding the existing one they built a second complete bathroom and left the old one intact. It has now become a storage room although I like to tell people I have a one bedroom – two bath home. I have lots of room for Beth’s clothes, but this has a drawback also: she is spending too much!

      Hi Captain Grace…

      I have 8′ ceilings here. I’m 5’6 so trying to hit those things is a little difficult… You should use your broadsword instead of a newspaper though…

       

      Love and hugs, Stephanie 💖

      Fond memories….

      I do remember friends of mine got the renown builders ” Fitzpatrick and sons”… Dublin’s finest, to do some work for them..anyway, after a night on the Guinness, they turned up monday morning to knock two rooms into one….but had the architects drawings sideways….my friends came home a week later… they had a twenty three foot high ceiling….

      and no bloody bedroom!!!!

      Smiles, grace ❤️

      Well after reading your post, I lay down on the floor and had a good look at my ceiling. Yep I can confirm it’s my ceiling and I have measured it and it’s 8ft high. My first house I bought with my wife, she wanted the bedroom painted pink, yes ceilings too. I was fabulous for six months, then it began to really bug both of us to point of regret, it was just too much pink. Yeah I have spiders too, I tend to catch and throw them out, but I am positive I have thrown the same one out a dozen times now,so it’s become a game of hide and seek and the spider is really good at it too. Any lower Grace and you wouldn’t be able to toss pancake would you.

      Hi Grace

      Surely the height of the ceiling is directly proportional to the heels that you are wearing at the time 😂

      Grace,

      Have you thought of a pair of stilts? You would be warmer and can smash those spiders with a rolled up newspaper. I can see you now in high heels on stilts with a glass of JD in one hand. Watch out for that ceiling fan!

        Another good call….

        Not sure about stilts, hate to get my hair caught in the ceiling fan.

        i love curly hair, but it may damage the electrics….sparkys are expensive!!

      Here in NZ the average ceilig height is 8′ any lower and I’d be smacking my head on lightshades and that would drive me mad indeed. My main bugbear is lack of storage space, the idiot who designed this house seemed to feel that one wardrobe per room was enough!

      The loft space would be ok – if I was about 2′ tall and I have a garage but Siri seems to like her little house so I am reluctant to evict her. What’s a girl to do?

          Lovey, I’m not risking my stockings up there! My knees would have been around my chin and I’d have snagged my panties on the rafters, duckwalking down the main beam in heels and a skirt – what a thought!! No I had a man in to look at re-insulating the roof space recently and he measured it with his ‘laser’ (Dr Evil would have loved that) and declared it too low to have anyone working in there (well Duh!) so that was that.

          Love your overactive imagination though Diana 💋

      For what it’s worth as a retired carpenter I can tell you that it’s a whole lot easier to lower a ceiling than it is to raise one.

      Grace you can’t go round on your hands an knees, or crouched double, just to accommodate your extensive wardrobe!  A light blow on the head is not advised either,  and you need the height for that chandelier!   As for spiders …  they are a girls best friends. Those wolf spiders – you know with long spindly legs and tiny bodies –  keep the gnats and flies down.  They won’t bother you if you don’t bother them.  Mind you, having just looked behind my bedside table …. Yikes!  It looks like Shelob’s lair!

      If you are fixated on ceilings I think you need a hobby other than shopping and lounging about in your sexy finery. Like knitting or tapestry.  Do some armchair travelling!  There are plenty of good travelogues on telly – Jane Macdonald, for instance, going on cruises. Scotland and Cornwall are very popular just now.  Or Darcey Bussel poncing around in … somewhere.

      You could lower your ceilings by painting them a dark colour – how about cerise?  If you extend the colour scheme part way down the walls they will look lower. Or hang material from them – like a Turkish boudoir – I have no idea what I am talking about. I have had a glass or two.

      How about making a wooden model of H.M.S. Victory – it will take you about 5000 hours, and you can put it on display where it will collect dust and let the spiders run up and down the rigging. Only costs about £500.

      Oh dear, I’ve  gone into a rant haven’t I?  Sunday evening boredom I expect. Nought on the telly. Goodnight from me, and goodnight from her. Now where is that glass…………..

      The average American home has 8’ ceilings, because builders use the standard 8’ 2×4 for wall studs ( the more expensive the home, the higher the ceilings). I can reach up to an 8’ ceiling and lay my hand flat

      Hi Grace…………yes……..I hear you girl………..I’m 5.2………..maybe I should put my chair ON my computer table to be closer to the heated area???  The thought of paying energy bills so spiders can keep warm and toasty…………I need to take my meds too.  It’s still cool outside…………..and I would like to wear short skirts while on CDH.   Yeah, such wasted  “closet” space…………………I could use that space to romp around being a pretty girl!! Lockdown is making us crazy! Need more meds?  Delaware is wearing a sweater………..probably feels like a rolled up sleeping bag!!  k

      My house is slightly complicated so whilst some of my ceilings are 8ft some are 16ft. I have one ceiling which is only 7ft and it seems a little oppressive. It is about proportion I do love the rooms with high ceilings they feel open and airy. The lounge in particular where a 10 ft high patio door opens full width to the garden and really bring the outdoors indoors. Heating wise provided your insulation and draft proofing is reasonable it’s just a case of having a small fan to circulate the air in the room.

      Mind you 16ft ceilings would convert to an awful lot of closet space.

      I think it was a standard height meant to accommodate light fixtures. (and probably bouffant hair-dos.)
