The roof is a AEP Span standing seam, with a "Zincalume" finish.

We've had good luck with the OSMO Hardwax Oil satin floor finish on countertops. It's what's on the salvaged bowling alley dining room table pictured in this project.

Can you tell me about the wood siding? Is it tongue and groove? What kind of stain did you use?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Mitchell Parker added this to Houzz Tour: A Farmhouse Branches Out
Tilt replaced the old western wing of the house, which had a small, cramped kitchen and dining room surrounded by unused storage rooms, and added a new structure with a larger kitchen. She used the old storage rooms to create one large dining room that opens to the gardens. Asbestos siding was removed and replaced with painted Hardie board on the main house and V-groove cedar siding in different widths on the addition. The red bay window extends out to accommodate a large Japanese-style bathtub. A ventilated “icehouse” metal roof with eaves and window shades helps keep the house cool. White paint color: Plateau, Ralph Lauren
