Flooring - What kind of hardwood flooring is shown.

I really love the reveal used on the drywall at the base, carrying that through around the windows and the same around the doors. How is that done? Is the baseboard flush with the drywall and the wood floor under the drywall? Then around the windows and doors (not shown in this picture but others) how is that done?

Normally in construction, drywall is installed and then the trim is installed. The wood flooring is installed to the edge of the drywall and then the trim (baseboard) hides the gaps between the wall and the floor. This process allows for a higher margin of error as the seams (connection of walls and floor) to be hidden by a trim.

In this residence, the drywall was partially installed to roughly 24" above the floor and 12" around the openings (leaving room around the floor and the cased openings). The wood floor was installed to the studs and then trim was installed flush with the drywall. After the trim was installed, the drywall was installed to fill the gaps and then finished to hide all seams.

It should be noted that the labor required to achieve this look is almost double normal construction as essentially you are requiring more precision as well as almost double the labor to achieve this look.

6. Artwork. Two matching niches carved into an other wise flat wall not only give architectural interest to this foyer, but a dignified stage for treasures from Thailand. And lighting is fairly simple to install, once you’re inside the wall space with access to the wiring.
