I also ADORE my pot rack. It was custom made for me by a blacksmith in New Hampshire. At the time my place had 12 foot ceilings, so when I moved to my condo, he made new "hangers" for it to go with the much lower heights.
In fact, my kitchen has a dropped ceiling. When my handy man installed the pot rack, he went all the way up to the studs in the real ceiling so there would never be an issue with the weight on the rack.
Not everything fits on it... Some pans just don't have handles that allow them to hang. but in my 7 x 14 kitchen, my extensive cookware collection wouldn't have a chance without that pot rack.
Sounds nifty. My kitchen is about that size. Where do you hang it so people don't bump their heads on it?
May you live as long as you wish and love as long as you live.
