English term or phrase: tray ceiling
S'agit-il d'un faux plafond?
Merci à tous!

French translation:(pas "faux-plafond")
Explanation:
Voici ce que dit le deuxieme site ci-bas:"A tray ceiling is a regular horizontal (flat) ceiling, except that there is a chamfer around the circumference that angles towards the wall. Since tray ceilings can take advantage of unused space in the roof attic, they are often used to gain another foot or so in ceiling height. Rather than placing ceiling joists directly across the wall top plates, the ceiling joists are mounted a foot or so higher, intersecting the roof rafters.
Sometimes, in new homes, pre-fab trusses can be built to accommodate a tray ceiling with minimal additional cost." Vous trouverez une photo d'un "tray ceiling" au premier site ci-cas. Un autre site decrit: "Tray ceiling: A flat ceiling with the center portion raised." Je ne crois donc pas que ce soit un faux plafond. Mais je n'ai pas reussi a trouver une traduction. J'espere que cela vous aide quand meme.

Veuillez m'excuser pour le retard. Je n'ai toujours pas trouvé d'équivalent français mais au moins je sais que ce n'est pas un faux-palfond.
Merci!
