The Adobe Ceiling is a Structure in the Scorched Earth-DLC of ARK: Survival Evolved.


A ceiling provides protection from the elements, giving bonuses to hypo and hyperthermic insulation.


The Adobe Ceiling (along with the rest of the Adobe tier) is made to insulate the violent conditions of Scorched Earth, and is required to finish a full Adobe base build.

An Adobe Ceiling requires placement on a Adobe Wall (Scorched Earth) Wall, Adobe Pillar (Scorched Earth) Pillar, Adobe Foundation (Scorched Earth) Foundation, or another ceiling.
Once the first Adobe Ceiling is placed, subsequent Adobe Ceilings can snap into place along the first one, allowing them to line up, provided that there is adequate room to do so.
A ceiling requires support from a nearby foundation or pillar in order to be placed. The ceiling can only be placed up to 2 ceilings away in any direction on the x or y-axis, and up to 1 ceiling away diagonally from a wall or another ceiling that is directly above a connected foundation or pillar. The ceilings on the far ends of this setup will not be able to support walls.


  • If a ceiling is destroyed, any building pieces that rely on it for support will be destroyed as well. If it was destroyed via the demolish option, no resources will be refunded for these extra building pieces.
  • The Adobe Ceiling, Adobe Foundation and Adobe Walls are all require for a simple build of Adobe if you want the best hyperthermal insulation possible.
