Hi,...Plywood was face nailed with finishing nails over a layer of sheetrock to comply with code.

Hi, sorry to take so long getting back to you,...yes the floor is concrete, [in the profession, cement is the binder for concrete], and it was stained, but I've lost the records of what the color was.

Is the plywood fire retardant? Or were any steps taken to make it fire code friendly?

No it's regular CDX plywood, which I chose myself for maximum number of "football's, those knot replacers. We had to sheetrock behind it, to satisfy the firecodes.

What did you use to finish the plywood? The grain looks awesome...

What Houzz contributors are saying:

John Hill added this to Sawtooth Roofs Help Homes Look Sharp
Here is one place where the sawtooth relates directly to an individual room. The clerestory on the top right aligns with a garagelike retractable wall below, creating a large opening between rooms.
Duo Dickinson, architect added this to The Hidden Factors Driving Your Home's Design
There are rules that every new built house must follow. These regulations shape and define many essential elements you may think came out of a designer's imagination. Rules and beauty are not enemies, however. Talented designers can make limitations disappear, requirements can express themselves with delightful details, and idiosyncracies of homeowners can become artful features anyone can appreciate. For example, this home's unique sliding barn doors are a feature design element. They also separate adult areas from children's, and the generous opening can accommodate a wheelchair.
Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Design Workshop: The Case for Big Overhead Doors
Other UsesNot only are sectional doors great for connecting indoor and outdoor spaces, but you might consider using them between interior and semiexterior spaces, as seen here. When the door is open, the kitchen blends with the nearby screened porch. With fewer weather-driven restrictions, this application delivers all of the visual and spatial benefits and still allows a way to seasonally separate these essential transition spaces.More: Design Workshop: The Lowdown on Colossal DoorsSee how a garage door opens a St. Louis home
