Fireplace hearth material - Hi, I adore this room - esp the floors. What material was used underneath the fireplace? It appears to be a sheet of brushed steel? Thanks!

Thanks, Kelty! Pine flooring was used in this cabin while slabs of Pennsylvania bluestone make up the hearth area. Attached is another photo which shows this area in better detail. Hope this helps!

Where did the cieling beams come from? - I want to do decorative posts in my man cave like these where do I look for them? Pricing, Ordering, ECT...?

Thanks for your question. The rough cut cedar beams came from Portage Mills, a cedar mill in Maine with excellent pricing. Your best bet is to find a local mill or specialty lumber yard.

The half-sawn logs were acquired locally from a woodmizer. Do a search for sawmill or woodmizer services and you should find a local resource for you. Some tree service companies will also provide sawmill and woodmizer services. Hope this helps - and good luck!

Hello. I have a question and would appreciate an advice. My husband wants to cover our tv niche with plywood, paint it, and attach a tv mount for a flat screen tv. He seems to just look at the practicality of it - for the sole purpose of hanging the tv but I am concerned about the aesthetics. How do professional designers feel about this? Even with a clean job, I think the top portion will still show where the covering begins as it won't completely cover the niche vertically. Thank you. any suggestion will be appreciated. Thank you so much.

Hi rmaglasang, not sure how big of a niche you are covering, but instead of trying to make the painted plywood match the existing drywall, why not use it to your advantage and create a feature out of it, you could have stained birch or maple plywood behind the TV which would look really sleek without breaking the bank.

Just seeing this question on this photo now - a year later! Sorry - hope you got the TV niche addressed as you wanted!
