Sorry but the plans can not be purchased. This home was custom designed for our client's needs and we have to respect their privacy. Thanks for your interest though.

Please be kind enough to inform me the type of wood used on the open ceiling,and perhaps if possible the stain used. We are waiting patiently for your answer and our contractor is ready to choke us. LOL Thanks for your immediate response.Linda Knowles/Nassau

I don't know about the finish on this ceiling, but I got a look like this by painting our beach house walls with half latex paint and half water. You can play with the mix until you get the look you like. Hope this helps.

I too thinned down some white paint with water, about a 50/50 ratio, and I got a really good result. Used my old deck boards, power washed them, then whitewashed them and installed in a bathroom ceiling like this open ceiling with rafter look.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Pendants. A pendant light hangs from a chain, cord or stem and has a domed canopy at the top to hide the electrical box. Although it's not usually the type of lighting that'd be used on a fireplace focal wall, the pendants shown here make a big impact.Design tip: Pendant lights come with extra feet of chain, cord or stem that can be adjusted to the necessary height.
