Thank you for responding Margie. The range hood is a standard, made for corners. Rather our crews framed the decorative surround to hold it. The Dacor 6 burner range is 48 inches wide. Here are the specs so you can take a look for yourself: http://www.dacor.com/Our-Products/Ranges/Discovery-48-Inch-Dual-Fuel-Range.aspx.

Thank you for your interest in our project. The windows are from Kolbe - casements that open with a crank.

It is a wood burning fireplace. An existing brick fireplace was refaced with the integral color plaster box and wall. I hope that helps you.

The ceiling height to accommodate the car lifts is 11 ft 6 in. As you can see that allows for a 1950's Chevy to park above a standard vehicle. The reality is that even an SUV can park under that Chevy!

This is Omega 3 - a cement-based stucco system., The colors are a combination of colors with the following bag ratio: 1=405 x 1 bag, 2 =412 x 2bags, 3 = 412 x 3 bags.

The metal is titanium - to withstand the harsh marine environment. It is not painted. We sourced the material through a local architectural sheet metal/roofing supplier. Any architectural sheet metal company should be able to provide this material for you. I hope this helps.
