In residential work, the ceiling is often included as part of the floor system of the floor above. However, for commercial work and to maintain more control over both the model as well as the drawings created from it, it is recommended that the ceiling be modeled as a separate object. Additionally,an argument could also be made that in the case of reflected ceiling plans, your file structure, and specifically your layer set-up should include a layer for spaces that is placed “at the top of the stack” in each story. Furthermore, when using the Space tool to create room names, consider taking advantage of its ability to create multiple labels placing them is classes such that they can be toggled on or off to get the look you need. See the document “Space Label Tool” for more information.
