I realize now that this is remodeling for plumbing only!! I wish I would have found this site sooner!! As for my question above, does anyone have an idea where I might find advice for this kind of problem or maybe a suggestion for me here?

: I moved into an 1950's cottage style house that had been added on to at one end. I chose to move the bathroom into what (before the addition) was an ouside access storage room. Moving the plumbing, tub, toilet and sink had it's challenges but that part is done. Now I have to do the part I've been putting off!! lol The ceiling of this room is rough boards. An attempt to put up ceiling tile by the previous owners left globs of dark brown rock hard like stuff all over the ceiling which I can't even chisel off. I bought some thin firring strips thinking I could maybe run the strips with the joists and give me something to attach the greenboard to but I'm worried about moisture getting trapped between the greenboad and the original ceiling. I have plastic sheeting but thought before I do this treatment to this ceiling, I'd ask if you have a better idea? or maybe some advise?
