Would highly recommend 9' ceilings on the 2nd floor...after you look back, $9,800 will be well worth it, even if it seems like a lot now...it won't down the road and you'll be happy you did. :)

Some people say yes, others no. All personal preference.

Did we, no. Did many others on this site, absolutely. If you don't mind spending the $~450 for peace of mind, why not.

Good luck!
