bathroom ceiling

Hi
I removed the drywalls in the bathroom in my basement and also the drywall in the ceiling of that bathroom. I do not want drywalls. Now I see in the ceiling a wood (please see attached pictures). What is this used for? Can I remove it. I want the bathroom "unfinished" and I do not mind to see all the concrete and structural woods as I am planning to paint them and keep it that way. I appreciate any help in advance. Thank you so much.

Is your bathroom under front porch? The only place that may look like that is basement cold room.

That was there to hold when cement was pouring and forming. It supposed to be remove to avoid molds.

you may need to insulate it because it will get cold in the winter and your pipes will freeze and burst.

It is in very bad condition. I did not know why is there until you just said that. You are the best. Thank you so much :)

By the way, the posts should be removed. They are rotting.

These were for the dry walls. Do you still think I should remove them?

You may want to cover up that electrical stuff before using that cold cellar as a bathroom

Would appreciate any idea on how to do that. I was planing to leave them as is but just to tied them up in a nice way but they would be visible. I saw one cable was melted a bit where it contacted the wood of the drywall. So that is why I do not like the drywalls. They hide problems.

Between the pictures and your responses, I would suggest hiring a professional.

Will this bathroom be used primarily by you or some family members you're not too fond off?
The pipes are bound to freeze, the exposed wiring is just asking for trouble, and do you have a exhaust fan?
