Custom Home Planning Center
If your using mahogany or cherry be aware that solar exposure darken the floors substantially as they age in those area with direct sunlight. If you don't use an oil finish the plasticizers in the water based finishes are going to cloud in these areas as well.

Also ask if the wood is plantation grown and sustainably logged. You don't want to encourage clear cutting or slash and burn operations.

Yes, please, what is the paint color. I love this. Not too white, but rather a light khaki. Thanks!
