Which country's embassy is suspending this kit, and why?

Be careful, that country might claim your property being part of their embassy and claim ownership

You prefer drywall until something leaks upstairs or you need to access the ceiling

We just finished an office space with this. It's a lot nicer than any drop ceiling I've ever seen. Very heavy duty.

Embassy on sale is $3.50/sqft

Drywall is like $1.00/sqft finished

I can redo my entire drywall ceiling 3 times and still save money.

This CAN look good, but to me these are too small of sections and the all white seems kinda dated. Price is decent, although not much difference and you can customize as you like. All subjective of course, and pending your handiness/skill level.

We (my GF and I) recently just did our basement ceiling in this style but with some changes.

Ripped down the contractor installed drop ceiling and simply used 2x4 on their edge to build a frame, made ledges with trim board and then panels with hardboard sitting inside them...super cheap and can make them any colour combo you want. Got some wifi lights, in ceiling speakers and BAM new theatre room!

The biggest thing was the amount of ceiling height GAINED from ripping out the shitty drop ceiling. We got an extra 6.75" of headroom from doing it, absolutely insane difference. The builders basically levelled out the ceiling with the ductwork than runs through the middle of the basement :facepalm: just lazy.

Just some extra info for people thinking of doing something similar.

I have it in my basement. Way better than the usual suspended. Minimal height loss!
I keep getting super nice comments on it. Can't beat the flexibility of being able to access.
I had both a drywalled and suspended ceiling in my 2 houses.
Will not go back to drywall in a basement. It allowed me to wire new things (central humidifier, fridge water connection, new spa 40amp wire, new smart light fixtures, adding a 4way switch...)
If you're 100p sure you will never do anything new or you are not a DIY then sure, do drywall.
I like to keep improving my home and that suspended ceiling is wonderful

Could you post some pics??

I'd love to see what it looks like since I'm not that impressed with the website pictures lol and it sounds like you are impressed by it, especially if people are liking it.

Done. Taste is subjective of course. I like the simplicity of it.
It's a basement. Like in "it's a basement, not my main floor showroom" ;)
I wouldn't put that on my main floor.
Clean look compared to the crappy 2x4 suspended tiles most put up

It’s a lot more user friendly than drywall. I’ve done plenty of both. A low skill diyer can easily crack out this embassy ceiling and have it looking great. I wouldn’t say the same about DIY drywall.

This looks really good! I'm just starting to finish our basement and might price this out! What thickness of hardboard did you use?

Do you know roughly $/sqft? At $3.75/sqft this embassy ceiling is nice but just not in my budget.

Will the 20% off be in Ontario? Where did you see that, anyway to confirm?
