Ladderline 160M

The only way I can think of installing this antenna is to connect it with a Par Fez End 40 meter antenna taped on the ceiling while the ladder line is also connected opposite and taped all around the ceiling of my apartment. I got the tip from my friend in amateur club. All he said, "we'll tape it all around your ceiling". What are the drawbacks? Since it is connected inside  my apartment, will it offset any excess length to accurately tune it to a frequency below 160 meters? What will I do with the antenna to tune to 80 meters or 50 meters? I intend not to follow the instructions in the  manual for lack of space and for apartment restrictions. Is there anyway I can install this antenna effectively? Thank you for all your support.
