I am rebuilding a house with a very similar ceiling but of fir. It had been stained dark brown and I had it blasted with walnut shells. It now looks very much like this but I fear it will turn the more orange look of fir. I am tempted to seal it and add a small amount of white stain (whitewash?). What do you think?

I am building a timberframe with doug fir. My builder said that you can achieve the color by using Benjamin Moore, Pale Oak. It is water based so it can be watered down slightly to achieve the desired color. It has just the right amount of greys, whites, and browns to counteract the reds that are naturally present in Doug Fir.

This Vermont ski lodge has a barn-like vernacular style, and the absolutely gorgeous beam construction demands that it be left exposed.

I love these beams. The wood panelling is also stunning.
