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!

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!

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!
