Hi, Are you asking about the fireplace surround? That can be applied with mastic, however any structural steel in the home is welded.

The fireplace surround is made of blackened steel, this is a chemical patina that allows the surface character and imperfections to be highlighted.

If you don't mind me asking...what is your opinion on ceiling height? From a design perspective...what is a trend I should stay away from with regards to ceiling heights? We are designing our home right now and are trying to get the open feeling without creating an awkward feeling. Our kitchen is set at 10 feet, so we were debating 12-15 feet in the great room and entry. Our style is contemporary/transitional. Great room faces west to get valley views. We are doing low e glass to help with the heat. Thoughts?

I think a 12'-13' ceiling height is optimal. This has a great feeling of space but can also feel intimate.

Hi, The sofa was provided by the homeowner and I don't have a record of where they purchased it. I do know it was custom made for the home.

That is excellent! Thank you for the quick response very helpful.

For the beams - From my research steel beams appear to be priced weight. Is there any correlation to this weight by the thickness of the flanges and web dimensions i.e. maybe 3/4" or 1/2"? I have seen that some beams that are 8x8/8x12 etc. are nice and thick and chuncky and others seem although still heavy steel are thin in comparison. I am not sure if I am communicating the question well my apologies if this sounds confusing. The weight of the beams in this home give that very appearance which I am after.

I am also curious to now (if this is possible) is using steel in a residential application is more costly as apposed to traditional methods? We live in Florida and we are designing an indoor/outdoor style home (ground up) and I am using ALL WALLS as my main wall system but, I am currently designing the home with the steel integrated into the project for the great room and the tv room but I am not certain as to whether or not it will be out of our budget range.

Thank you again for the quick response and I look forward to hearing from.

Hi - the wide flange beams have flange thickness of 1/2". Beams are specified by weight which has an effect on flange thickness. Using structural steel as an intergrated material is usually expensive. The type of welding and finishing of the steel adds to cost as well as the intergration of the other materials and systems.

What is the material around the fireplace? Does it require any special care? PS

That is a hidden TV. The large steel panel slides to the left to reveal the TV. You can see images of this on our website under Lake House II. Pretty slick!

Does the steel get hot and is their a way to frame/insulate it so it stays cool to touch when the fireplace is in use?
