Are you looking for the specific type of wood? Something about it looks like may be either a vintage ceiling or made of reclaimed wood. Looks old to me.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Book Tour: The Happy Home Project
Finally, having space to enjoy fresh air and views will up your happiness quotient tenfold. While you may not have a gorgeous lake house with a screened-in porch like this one, you can certainly charm up your own porch, balcony or patio with comfortable furniture, plants, and lighting that helps you use it for more hours of the day. Here, a bright green wall, wicker and twig furnishings, a pot of flowers and a breeze result in one very joy-inducing spot.
Becky Harris added this to Enliven Your Porch With Color
Embrace the exterior wall color. A lake house's brilliant green board and batten siding is almost all the color this porch needs; pops of raspberry are the finishing touch.
3. Walk through once and let yourself soak it all in. When you tour a home for the first time, the excitement can make it difficult to focus on ... well, anything at all. So I say, just go with it. Have fun, wander around and mentally note your first impressions of the space. Once the butterflies have died down, it's time to get to work.
Becky Harris added this to The Comfy Lake House Rule Book
Board and batten, tongue and groove paneling, shiplap and beadboard are also acceptable ceiling and wall choices.
