The spec plan determines what type of walls & ceiling (plus wall and ceiling decorating) that will be needed for your remodeling project. It will also contain the product specifications for wall & ceiling design, wall & ceiling color, wall painting, wall structure, other.

You will use the spec plan and architectural design to bid the project out to wall & ceiling contractors.
