Windows/doors are Marvin aluminum clad with a primed
Interior. The clients selected the color. I don't
Have the exact grey. No stain in the concrete floor.

Clear sealer was also an owner/ builder selection.
I will look though my files this next week and
See if I have any other info, if yes, I'll add that
Thanks for the questions,

what kind of stain & polish did you use for the beautiful floors?!?!

There was no stain used on this floor -- there was likely 1/2 lb of carbon black per cubic yard included in the mix - this needs to be specificed so that the powder is included in the mix. The finish is a clear penetrating sealer - I'll see if can track down what was used and post about this.
Thanks for the question.

Hi, can I ask how many inches you left from the back of the stove to the wall? I am having a Rais stove installed this week and I feel like the contractor left too much space, more then code requires. Thanks!

Hi Kelty -
Each stove is a little different - some have round backs, others are flattened for a section.
The clearances are clearly called out in the literature for each stove and if memory serves - a distinction is made between clearance to combustible and or non-combustible surfaces. All of the stoves used in my projects were set off of walls to meet the requirements for the conditions in which they were placed. So- for your situation -- check the diagram and then measure what was done.
I hope this helps.

Hi -
Sorry to say I am not sure -- the red one is from Mexico for sure -- the yellow one is probably from Crate and Barrel. If I find out more -- I'll post the information.

Thank you so much! We are building right now and this studio really encompasses so much of what we are drawn to. We are using ICF for the exteriors and I have been working to find that perfect white for the plaster/stucco. I think this is it! Your work is really wonderful. Thank you for sharing it on HOUZZ.

I absolutely love that stove. But Rais does not make that model anymore!
Not sure why as it's obviously a great looking stove.
They've gone for a more "modern" streamlined look.
Also a note on Rais stoves, the fire boxes are
small and don't take cordwood longer than 12 or 14 inches.
Not a problem if you cut your own wood but most people don't.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Similar to the previous image, this contemporary space receives a snug touch from its wood stove.
The main space is furnished with pieces that are easy to rearrange for different events. Large windows and glass doors flood the open room with natural light. Several doors open to the outdoors.Smaller groups tend to gather around the woodstove or in the alcove to the right. During the colder months, the stove spreads heat across the concrete floors. The exposed Douglas fir rafters add rhythm, warmth and natural texture overhead. Rigid insulation is sandwiched between the roof and the rafters.
Aim to include the five elements in each room. While it is not necessary to literally incorporate the five elements (water, wood, fire, earth and metal), try to bring something that represents the elements into your space. For instance, glass or a mirror can stand in for water, a candle or lamp for fire, and ceramics for earth. A room with all five elements present will feel more comfortable and well balanced.
8. You want more warmth. Traditional wall fireplaces may look beautiful, but they do little in terms of providing heat. If true warmth and coziness are what you’re after, you might be better off investing in a quality woodstove, which can generate enough heat to warm an entire house on its own, or in conjunction with another source of heat.Tell us: Where do you stand on fireplaces? If you have one, how often do you use it? Would you ever consider getting rid of yours?More: Learn about cleaner-burning woodstoves
