We are building a new house. It's in something of a cross shape. We have the hallway running from front to back door and it's 8-1/2' wide. In the center, it widens to 12-1/2' and will be our 'dining hall'. On one side of the dining hall is the kitchen, the other the living room. We are considering running reclaimed barn wood down the hall about 5' up (10' ceilings in hall). Should we run it in the living room as well since it opens off the hall? My concerns are too much wood if we run it, or being chopped up looking if we don't. I had an idea of not running the wood in the living room, but using heavy post and beams in the corners. Any thoughts or suggestions?
