Nickel Gap Board - How does one acquire nickel gap board. Do you go to a lumber company and have it made custom, or how is it purchased. I know you partially already answered the question, but you didn't really say how in the end you acquire it. If it's a builder making it, how is it done? Thanks

We've seen it done multiple ways. Some builders we've worked with have done it themselves, while others have subcontracted the milling with a local lumber yard or mill.

The fireplace surround is honed green slate. This particular green slate was sourced from Sheldon Slate in Monson, Maine.

Wall board - What is the wall board in this picture?

Hi there!

The walls are just beautiful! Is the nickel gap boarding hard to install? Are they okay to put in a bathroom with moisture? Can you buy them ready to go, or you have to get someone to mill them?

Thank you so much!!

Thank you for your questions. A) We've heard no complaints from builders regarding the installation of nickel gap boarding. B) We've specified nickel gap boarding within bathrooms, however we always recommend good ventilation within bathrooms where their might be excessive moisture build-up. C) Unfortunately we've not seen nickel gap boarding sold, "ready to go". Hopefully this will change some day.

Hello, thank your for your question and comment. Unfortunately, we are not sure where this bedspread came from.

I really like this dormer! Can you give me some of the specs? - What is the width of the dormer, the space between the three windows, and the dimensions of the windows? This is beautiful and really opens this room up!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Rachel Grace added this to Renovation Detail: The Shed Dormer
Shed dormers allow for light-flooded rooms. Three large casement windows grace this lakefront home's master bedroom.
Becky Harris added this to 10 Ways to Go Coastal With a Modern Edge
7. Ward off boredom with boards. Beadboard, tongue and groove paneling and shiplap are coastal alternatives to drywall that add texture and interest without busying things up.
