How do you find a ceiling joist?

Article Tools

Stand on a ladder near one of the side walls of the room. Measure 16 inches in from the wall with a measuring tape. Note whether the first joist was 16 or 24 inches from the wall. Hold a flashlight right by the ceiling on a very gentle angle to the surface, so the light shines nearly horizontally across it.
