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

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.

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
