Who makes the fireplace stove and where can I find one? - The fireplace is perfect for a small space. Is it wood burning?

How did you apply the shingles? - I want to do this but there is nothing on the internet that has instructions. It is so pretty!

Hi Carrie. The shingles are part of the original early century cottage. You'd need to provide a continuous backing. I take it you are a DIY er but I would consider having an experienced contractor do the work. Good luck

Approximately 4 x reclaimed, it is not a "true" dimension like stock lumber.

Bringing the outside in! - I love how this room has so many great exterior features. Were any of them existing? Or an add on? Love the whole feel of this room.

The living room is an addition that is "wrapped" around an existing 1920's cabin. The wall that is the backdrop to the living room (with shingles) and sliding pane windows between the kitchen and living room were existing.

What is the flooring material in living areas/kitchen? Would also like to know flooring in bathroom. Thanks!

Homeland Glueless Floor Planks – 100% recycled content in the Living Room. I believe the Owners sourced the product at Lowes or Home Depot. The Owners sourced the bathroom floor tile and I think it is a simple grey slate. The wall tile is "seconds" from Heath ceramics. Happy Holidays

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The original intact exterior, now surrounding the kitchen, offers texture and character. These original shingles were simply cleaned. The team reused any shingles that needed to be removed. Reclaimed wood ceiling beams from Heritage Salvage create a spot for hidden uplighting. Artwork: "The Culvert," by James Arendt
