Good Morning and thank you for your question.

Since the project is many years finished - I don't have that exact answer for you. However you can Google MAC Custom Homes in Traverse City Michigan (the contractor) and inquire with his team.

Have a great day

Good Afternoon and thank you for your question.

This is a sand-in-place wood floor with a custom stain. Since the project is several years completed, I do not remember the wood species - however I am thinking that it may have been white oak.

I hope that helps you!
Thanks again

Hello nancygio,

The dining room table was custom designed by the designer and we had it fabricated by our individual tradesmen. Please let us know if you have any more inquiries and we will be glad to answer any questions to further assist you.

Hi Cynth, just wondering if you're still interested in a piece of art like in the picture? I have a photographer who has a landscape shot almost identical to this. Just a little more yellow in the leaves. If you'd like I can probably arrange for you to see an image of it. Let me know :) Oh by the way the site is live now, feel free to take a look -

Good Afternoon,

This piece of art was purchased in Manhattan, NY in the Grand Plaza Hotel on 5th avenue at the Peter Lik Gallery. Thank you for your question and look forward to assisting you with any more inquiries.
