comment Should I replace or patch a plaster ceiling?
The plaster in the dining room fell due to lathing that was warped. not by moisture though, we checked. So if I repaired that particular hole, the lathe would need to be replaced, which leads me to..why not just do the whole thing since there is a good chance I'm just going to have to fix another part of the ceiling anyway too. Thanks for your very detailed answer.

comment Should I replace or patch a plaster ceiling?
I understand the mess part of it, that's why I haven't done it yet. I really don't want to just cover it up, it seems it will mess up the feel of the ceiling heights in the adjoining rooms. Plus I will have to deal with other soon to be gaping holes in other rooms. I don't want to replace every ceiling, I guess I'm looking for ideas.
