The Gatehouse

Great Hall with reclaimed flooring from an 1880’s barn in Osseo, Wisconsin. The Baker’s rack on the far wall is an antique from France that the owner has had for many years.

I am getting ready to paint or stain a ceiling for our new screened porch with beams and am considering polyuerathane with a cup of white paint. It looks like the wood behind these beams may be stained. Would love to avoid painting!

They looked like they're made from cut-up kilim - I have some, too (bought from a thrift shop, sorry).

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Inside, the vaulted ceiling and open plan make the "great hall" feel larger, while reclaimed materials make it feel older."The owner really has a great sense of interior design and style, and did all the interior decorating herself," says Murphy. She bought the French baker’s rack many years ago, and Murphy designed the windows so that it would fit perfectly between the them.
Laura Gaskill added this to 14 Idea-Filled Cottages to Suit Every Mood
5. Storybook StoneThe design for this cozy cottage in Minnesota was based on historic English stone cottages. Jeff Murphy of Murphy & Co. Design used a bevvy of reclaimed materials — stone, brick, slate and wood — to give the home its naturally aged look.See the tour: Fairy Tale Gatehouse in Minnesota

This scenario of hand-hewn re-purposed barn beams shows something else I'd like you to consider. Notice at the right side of the photo, the truss-beams die into the wall, and are not supported below with a vertical beam/post. Do you have an opinion yet about posts on the walls appearing to support the beam/trusses, or do you prefer this look where the post support exists inside the wall vs. atop/in-front of the wall creating the support?
