Classic Coastal Colonial Renovation - Great Room

From the homeowner: "I love standing at the center island in the kitchen, taking in what is happening in the entire house. From there I can see out the big windows in the front of the house to the street, out the custom window in the eating area to the backyard, into the mudroom in case someone comes in, what’s happening on the tv, and with the kids in the playroom. It is like the command center of the home."

What are the dimensions of the ceiling detail in the TV area? - The beam detail in the ceiling appears to be somewhat raised but not so severe as beams. Trying to get a better understanding of their design and installation. Thanks!

The "beams" are 1x6 pieces of primed pine. Gave us the detailed look without eating into our ceiling height.

How did you build these columns? - Are basement has similar columns and we accidentally dented one near the base. I see it has a metal sleeve on the corner (that is now dented). Trying to figure out the best repair method.

Oak & Broad
The floor looks great! We always recommend Water Based Poly as well. The character grade while a "lower" grade is actually significantly more popular than the higher select grades. As an example here is a 10" wide character White Oak floor with Cabot's BitterSweet stain.

Rawhide isn't just for cowboys anymore. A cowhide like the Koldby from Ikea looks modern in a white room.
