1860 Home with Low Ceilings
BCollins

I am currently in the process of purchasing a home that was originally a factory built with Post and Beam construction. After walking down the stairs I noticed that the is about 2 feet between the ceiling of the first floor and the second floor. The ceiling is plaster. I am wondering what are the chances I can actually remove the ceiling to expose the beams. Any help or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

cut a small hole that you can easily patch, grab a flashlight and take a peek up there.

I agree with MLB, the only way to answer your question is through inspection.
